RUNNING FOR HEARTS 5K FAMILY FUN RUN AND WALK BENEFITS SHIELD BEARER

Hundreds of runners and walkers participated in the 2nd Annual Running for Hearts 5K Family Fun Run and Walk benefiting Shield Bearer at Northside Christian Church on March 25. This event, co-chaired by Precinct 4 Harris County Commissioner R. Jack Cagle and Shield Bearer Founder Matthew White, shed light on the growing need for counseling services and prevention programs for victims of crime, abuse, and human trafficking in the community.

“Shield Bearer provides a safe and hopeful place for children and adults to rebuild after tragedy and trauma. We are so thankful for everyone who came out to make a difference for people who have gone through traumatic events right here in Northwest Houston,” stated Shield Bearer Executive Director Roy Wooten.

Local businesses, schools, and organizations rallied to support this cause including Platinum Sponsor Avanti Senior Living. “Avanti Senior Living is dedicated to enriching the lives of their residents and the community around them. The volunteer support from local schools was incredible, and organizations like the American Business Women’s Association generated thousands of dollars for the cause,” stated Shield Bearer associate director Melissa Rotholz.

Additional sponsors included FINS ‘The Art of Swim’, Toney Construction Services, Lindsay’s Light, Brookside Funeral Home-Champions, Tomball Ford and Dodge, Freedom Publishing Unlimited, Health South, Spring Medical Associates, Dayna Wilson State Farm, Biggby Coffee, Houston Methodist Hospital, Nestle Pure Life, ReWarding Images, Misfit Design Group, P31 Fitness, Chick-fil-A, Giannina’s Pizza and Catering, Tacos Ole, HEB Spring Market, and Tikiz Shaved Ice and Ice Cream.
