TEAM HAPS came back for the 21st consecutive year as an official Run for a Reason charity in the 2017 Chevron Houston Marathon which took place January 14th and 15th. This year, HAPS gathered a team of nearly 150 walkers on Saturday for the ABB5K event and over 40 runners on Sunday for the half and full marathon events to raise awareness for Parkinson's disease and to generate valuable funding for HAPS programs and services. This year, our fundraising goal was $115,000 to fund programs and services in our area for those living with the disease. HAPS was proud to be awarded with Top Fundraising Team and 3rd Place Overall Top Fundraising Charity honors last year - so we have big footsteps to follow in this year!
