He is Back! The Texas Heart Fun Run Returns

HOUSTON – (January 20, 2020) – The year 2013 was tough for The Great Pumpkin. He put on a few pounds. His vines were flabby. His shoes no longer fit, and his stem hurt. So, we let him take a break after an incredible run of 17 events that began in 1992.

GUESS WHAT?  He is back and better than ever. Our favorite orange friend is on a heart-healthy diet, exercising regularly and, his skin is glowing. 

He is training as planned and ready to announce his return to the Texas Heart Fun Run to be held on Saturday, October 31, 2020.

He is excited to see his old friends and meet new ones – especially the kids. In fact, he insists on serving as a judge in the children’s costume contest.  

This is an event you don’t want to miss. Live entertainment—Dr. Billy Cohn with The Guzzlers – and of course, great food and beverages at the post-race celebration. The Texas Heart Fun Run will be an exhilarating morning of fun for all ages, so mark your calendar today.

This year’s event is in honor of Dr. Denton A. Cooley – this was one of his favorite THI traditions.

Share the great news with your family and friends, find your costume, and get ready to hit the town running on Halloween with the Texas Heart Institute.

Registration Opens Soon!
