The 2017 Trafigura Run for the House was a lively celebration Saturday, December 2, 2017, honoring our Ronald McDonald House Houston families. This annual USATF Certified 10K and 5K Run/Walk/Roll included 1,250 participants and supportive spectators, plus 250 volunteers at Sam Houston Park in Downtown Houston. The park began filling with early risers at 6:30 AM. By 9 AM, the family/pup-friendly free Mogie “After Party” was rolling along. DJ Phil added his usual spark with happy and lively popular dance music. Snacks, craft booths and games were plentiful. Kids and parents, alike, had a GREAT time!
Many thanks to our generous sponsor, the Trafigura Foundation, which matches all our underwriters’ donations and runners’ entries, dollar for dollar, up to $300,000! In addition, the Houston Trafigura office also plan an exciting Quiz Night Fundraiser for RMH Houston in the fall and they actively endorse the programs and services we offer to children and their families. Total amount raised was $623,389.
Many thanks to the Trafigura Foundation for generously matching every contribution, up to $300,000, dollar for dollar.
