About This Activity

The 2nd annual Homes For Our Troops 5k/10k fun run will be held at Bear Creek Park on Saturday, November 21st rain or shine!

Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2004 that is strongly committed to building specially adapted homes for the over 1700 Service Members nationwide who have returned home with life-altering injuries post 9/11. HFOT assists the Veterans and their families by raising money, and providing building materials and professional labor to coordinate the construction of a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. These homes are provided mortgage-free to the Veterans we serve.

100% of funds from this race will be donated to Homes For Our Troops to build specially adapted homes for 3 Texas Veterans that lost limbs and have suffered traumatic brain injury during combat.

Come out to run for our troops around the smoothly paved Golbow Dr. If you're running the 10k, you'll run around the loop twice! Strollers are more than welcomed.

Their will be a post race award ceremony, food and fun!
