The Grant-A-Starr Foundation is holding its 6th Annual Family Fun Run & Walk!  The charity event date has been set for Saturday, March 22, at the Sugar Land Memorial Park, 15300 University Blvd, Sugar Land.

The 1 mile Fun Run/Walk begins at 9AM and the 5K Chip Timed Run/Walk begins at 9:30AM. Race day registration will be available at 6:30AM.  An award ceremony and post race party is at 10:30AM.  The course is USATF certified.  They will also have a Kid’s Zone sponsored by St. Luke’s Sugar Land Hospital.

The Grant-A-Starr Foundation was founded to celebrate the life of Grant Starr, a precious seven-year-old boy who passed away from unidentified virus.

What makes the Grant-A-Starr Foundation Fun Run unique is the student steering committee.  It is made up of local area high school volunteers who have taken a deep personal interest in the event.

Slater, a senior at Clements HS, says, “We have been blessed by great sponsorship in the past, and now we want to take it to the next level!  Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 for the Foundation and obviously, we need generous donations from the Sugar Land and Greater Houston business communities.  There are many levels of support available, and both businesses and individuals are encouraged to participate.  We welcome them all!”
