RA Sports Management is proud to announce the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA is the beneficiary of the 2016 Houston’s 12K of Christmas. The 7.45-mile road race scheduled for December 17, 2016 will start and finish at Fish Plaza at 500 Texas Ave., located in front of the Wortham Theater in downtown Houston. The family friendly Christmas themed fun run includes a timed 12K & 6K with a KidsK run/walk. All participants receive a finisher medal and t-shirt on race day. The festivities include hot cocoa and coffee provided by Katz Coffee, music, a costume contest, a visit from Santa and more.
“We are excited to partner with the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA for the fourth annual Houston’s 12K of Christmas,” said President of RA Sports Management, Graham Schooley. “YMCA programs help improve and enrich the lives of so many in our community. Partnering with the Y continues our dedication to benefit local Houston area children during the Christmas holiday.”
A portion of proceeds from the 2016 Houston’s 12K of Christmas will benefit the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA Annual Fund which helps ensure that the YMCA continues to strengthen the community through outreach programs focused on preventing chronic disease, eliminating drownings and improving the academic performance of our youth. The Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA is a member of the YMCA of Greater Houston.
First organized in 1886, the YMCA of Greater Houston is one of the city's leading nonprofits dedicated to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The YMCA, a United Way of Greater Houston agency, seeks to serve all – regardless of age, income, faith or background and we welcome everyone. In the Greater Houston area, approximately 30 YMCA centers, one overnight camp and hundreds of program sites nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the city's health and well-being, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Anchored in the Houston community, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver lasting personal and social change.
