Our Primary Mission Behind This Race is to Support The Houston Food Bank


Help us to achieve our goal of raising $1,000 to support a food bank that services one the largest geographical areas in the country. The Houston Food Bank feeds approximately 800,000 people annually and distributes over 104,000,000 meals annually to residents in 18 counties in the Southeast Texas area.


Food is essential during these times. Each $1 donated helps provide 3 meals! All donations submitted through the race website or to the organization's website go directly to them. Please note that the Houston Food Bank is a 501(c)3 organization meaning your donations are tax deductible! (More information can be found on their website)


In addition to your individual donations, 10% of ALL race sales will also go to benefit the organization. Whether you sign up for the race or not, you can still donate directly to the organization by clicking the donate button at the top of your screen or clicking the link below:

The year 2020 has been met with many challenges. To do our part, we've decided to host a virtual race not only to get people encouraged to work towards overall health during this time of quarantine, but to also support organizations that are essential to helping us get through this challenging time. 


Donations to the Houston Food Bank

10% of all race sales will go directly to the Houston Food Bank to support the organization's operations. If you don't want to sign up for the race, we still encourage you to donate what you can to the organization (click the donate button at the top). Our goal is to raise $1,000 in donations, not including the portion raised from ticket sales. 

Race Options

There's a free race option and a paid race option. The free race allows you to participate, join the Mint Health & Wellness Active Facebook Group and post your results to our leader board. The paid option allows you to receive the race swag bundle which includes a race bib, t-shirt and a race medal (for lifetime bragging rights and pictures).

Shipments will begin approximately 2 weeks before the race start date and we will continue to ship daily after until we're officially sold out.
