Memorial Hermann Foundation is excited to be among the local not-for-profit organizations to be selected as an official charity for the 2017 Houston Marathon Run for a Reason charity program. The charity program links runners with participating nonprofits and provides a platform for charities to raise awareness and funds as well as educate others about their cause.
