Hope Through Grace Sponsors its 11th Annual 5K Run/Walk-A-Thon


HTGHope Through Grace, Inc. (HTG) has funded baseline colonoscopies for dozens of asymptomatic uninsured or underinsured individuals a minimum of $1,000+ each plus the expense of pathology services. This represents a significant investment that HTG makes to the community. Many individuals screened had polyps (some pre-cancers) or other colon health problems that, without the colonoscopy funded by HTG, would go undetected. Early detection before turning into cancer is imperative; and Hope Through Grace has been there to provide it for persons who have no other place to turn.

March 19, 2016 marks the 11th year that HTG has hosted its Annual 5K Run/Walk-a-thon. It is one of our most fun events to plan as well as participate! From the very beginning, Hope Through Grace has promoted living healthy lifestyles, and what better way to do that than to get the community moving?

Each year brings out more participants than the last and we are excited to keep growing, spread awareness on the importance of colon cancer screenings and meet more members of our community. Pets, stroller clubs, line dancers, students (high school and post-secondary), senior citizens and others all are welcome. On March 19, 2016, join us to enjoy some fresh air, meet new friends and continue the tradition of helping others.

By registering for our 11th Annual Walk-A-Thon, you will help fund colon cancer awareness initiatives and cancer screenings for those people who need it most. Your support of this fundraising event enables us to prevent the onset of disease by providing financial support to uninsured persons and the underserved community in the Houston Metroplex area.

There are many who do not have health insurance, or the funds to cover colonoscopy screenings. That is where Hope Through Grace steps in! Money raised during this annual event goes towards paying for health education programs and colonoscopies for the members of our community that cannot afford the procedures.

See you March 19, 2016 at Tom Bass Park III, Pavilion VI (New Pavilion), located at 15108 Cullen Blvd, Houston TX 77047.
