virtual 5k 002For the 27th consecutive year, HAPS has been chosen as an official Run for a Reason charity in the 2021 Chevron Houston Marathon. As an organization, we couldn’t be more proud to continue this important partnership or more grateful to participate in such an amazing opportunity to increase visibility of HAPS, promote awareness of Parkinson’s, and raise much needed funds to continue our programs and services. 
 
We know many of you are feeling antsy and stuck at home or out of group settings. This year, we are hosting two virtual 5K events as we prepare and train for the official race weekend in January. You can sign up with TEAM HAPS for one, two or all three events and HAPS will be with you every step of the way! Here’s how it works...
 
  • A virtual race is a race that can be walked (or run) from any location you choose. You can walk, jog, or run on the road, on a trail, on the treadmill, or around your living room. You get to walk your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  
  • Register for one of the options below and get started.
  • We accept results on the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. The most accurate way to do this is by using a Running GPS watch or smart watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devices. 
  • Report your 5k finish to the HAPS office by the specified date and receive your virtual medal.
  • You can even log 1 mile with HAPS on one of the designated group walks while maintaining physical distance. Join us at 9:00 AM at Levy Park on June 23rd and July 8th for a group walk.
