The 33rd HBA John J. Eikenburg Law Week Fun Run Breaks Sponsorship Records

The 33rd HBA John J. Eikenburg Law Week Fun Run was Saturday, February 17 at Sam Houston Park Downtown.

A Fun Run registrant picks up their packet on the day of the race.

Each year, the HBA’s Fun Run Committee coordinates the event to raise funds for The Center, an organization that has promoted choice, growth and independence for Houstonians with intellectual and developmental disabilities for over 60 years.

The 2018 Fun Run raised a record-breaking amount — over $94,000 — thanks to the many sponsors.

Participants also enjoyed shopping, door prizes, complimentary massages and yoga, food, drinks, kids’ crafts, games, a live band, and much more. The after-party had something for everyone!
