Our friends at John Paul II, event organizers, and eager participants in Houston, Texas are getting ready for the annual Run with the Saints 5K.

In loving memory of Lauren Lockard. The 5k race will be on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 8:00 AM. There will also be a "Kids' K" that will begin at 7:30 AM.

This year, in the US, over 13,000 people will die from brain, spinal cord, or other nervous system tumors. Many of these victims are young children. Aggressive research supported by the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation is helping to reduce this tragic number.

In 1999, a vibrant and talented sixth-grade student at John Paul II Catholic School in Houston, Texas was taken by this disease. Lauren Lockard’s family, friends and faculty have vowed to fight this disease while keeping Lauren’s memory alive through a spirited community event. Continuing this promise, Date to be determined, John Paul II Catholic School and the friends and family of Lauren Lockard will be hold the next Annual Run with the Saints Lauren Lockard Memorial 5K Run. Proceeds from this event will directly benefit the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation and the John Paul II athletic program, which was very important to Lauren.

Run with the Saints is one of the few races run in West Harris County, Texas! The 5K course winds through the beautiful tree-lined neighborhood streets around John Paul II Catholic School, near Briar Forest Road and Highway 6. Parking is available on streets around the school.

This 5K event allows our community to demonstrate extraordinary strength and camaraderie. Everyone is welcome to come and participate in the 5K by running, walking and volunteering date to be determined, so please invite your friends.
