Description

This is the inaugural year of Dr. Kayce’s Birthday 5k. Event creator and director, Dr. Kayce Solari Williams is an advocate of all people living a life full of movement. Participants in this event will be giving Dr. Kayce a great birthday gift by running or walking for themselves AND a great organization. Half of the proceeds from the run will go towards participants’ shirts and medals. The other half will be donated to Hope Over Hurt (HOH), a faith-based, non-profit organization focused on Service, Outreach, and Empowerment in the Houston area, the US, and around the world. You can also donate additional funds to HOH during registration.

*Runners/walkers can join us in person on event day or participate in a virtual run anywhere in the world!

(*Shirts & medals are only available for shipment to virtual runners/walkers in the U.S. & Puerto Rico.)
