Run With Purpose 5K

Lot 50 @ TAMU (on Polo Road), College Station, TX 77840
Did you know that just 4% of the federal cancer budget goes towards pediatric cancer research? With Purpose, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to closing this funding gap for childhood cancer drugs.

By choosing to participate in the Run With Purpose 5K, you are choosing to support in the fight against childhood cancer. Whether your purpose is to honor a loved one who lost their battle with cancer, to help raise awareness for this seemingly endless battle, or just to get out and support a great cause, your choice will be part of curing a child with cancer.

Your entry fee includes a race t-shirt, Jamba Juice, and access to our post race giveaway featuring items from our sponsors!

We hope that you will join us for this kick off event to our With Purpose- College Station chapter! The sign-up link can be found below:

Please note: All participants under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

17th Annual B/CS Regional Association of REALTORS 5K Run/3K Walk with Pride

College Station
We would like to personally invite you, your family and friends to attend the 17th Annual Bryan/College Station Regional Association of REALTORS Fun Run/Walk with Pride. This year's event will be held on Saturday, April 11th at Wolf Pen Creek in College Station. Registration will begin at 7:30 am with the race following at 8:30 am.

With the help of Payless Shoes, all money raised will go to benefit local, underprivileged children by providing them with new school shoes in August. Last year we were able to provide shoes to over 350 children. The excitement and smiles on the faces of these children when they receive their new school shoes is priceless. The cost for early registration is $10.00 per child and $15.00 per adult and the early registration deadline is Friday, March 27th. Packet pick-up and late registration will be held on Friday, April 10th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at 1901 Greenfield Plaza in Bryan. Registration is also available the morning of the race.

Sponsorships opportunities are also still available for this event. The sponsorship levels span from bronze to gold and range in price from $150 to $350. Your donation is tax deductible and your business will be recognized the day of the event.

This family fun event gives you the opportunity to put your shoes to the test while providing children in our community with new shoes for school. T-shirts, awards, door prizes and more will be provided the day of the event. For registration and sponsorship forms or for additional information please visit or call the Association Office at (979) 846-3751. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
