Benefiting : Life Gift  (www.lifegift.org)

LifeGift offers hope to the thousands of people in Texas and beyond who need lifesaving organ transplants, and to countless others who need lifesaving tissue transplants. Houston Fun Runs chose Life Gift as this year’s beneficiary because of Life Gift’s emphasis on reaching the Hispanic communities and educating them on organ, eye and tissue donation. Forty percent of those waiting for a transplant in Texas are Hispanic.
