for the 29th annual event
HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lace up your running shoes – or boots – and register today to help raise
money for education. The ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run will be held Feb. 27,
2016. During the past 28 years, the event has provided hundreds of
scholarships through the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ (HLSR)
Educational Fund, totaling more than $4.5 million.
“Last year, we raised $400,000 for the HLSR Educational Fund thanks to
the commitment of our Rodeo Run participants,” said ConocoPhillips Human
Resources General Manager and ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run Chairperson
Heather Sirdashney. “We’re proud that 100 percent of our registration
fees support college scholarships and look forward to contributing again
through the 2016 ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run.”
Runners and walkers of all levels are invited to participate in the 10K
race or 5K run/walk. For the first time, all registrants will receive a
performance running shirt. HLSR parade spectators will cheer on the
ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run participants as they head to the finish line.
As a continued ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run tradition, the family-friendly
event will feature a popular costume contest, quality entertainment and
a Texas-size post-race party.
The first event begins at 9:10 a.m. at the intersection of Walker and
Bagby and finishes with a post-race party on Allen Parkway. This year’s
post-race party will include live music, plenty of food, prize giveaways
and fun for all ages. Runners and walkers can register at www.conocophillipsrodeorun.com.
Registration is $30 until Feb. 6 and $35 thereafter.
ConocoPhillips is able to donate all of the registration fees to the
HLSR Education Fund because of dedicated volunteers and sponsors.
Platinum sponsors are A-Rocket Moving & Storage, AIG, CBS Radio, Cox
Media, H-E-B, Mercury Signs & Display and United Airlines. Gold sponsors
include Bank of America, Bechtel, Fluor, Freudenberg Oil and Gas
Technologies and Weatherford.
