Run For A Reason

Whether you’re an avid marathoner or just want to stroll a 5K, you can meet your goals and support a local mission at the same time! You don’t even have to run at all to be part of the Houston SPCA team. Fundraise, be a HERO, or even just donate to not only prioritize your health and fitness, but help animals in need, too.
