Click to go to the web site for the Dads Day 5K, 3K and 1K benefiting Tex US TOO in Houston, Texas

During the monthly Tex US TOO chapter meeting in September, 1999, Joe Piper, one of our founding Directors said, “I think we should have a 5k run like Komen does.” After that meeting, the first volunteers gather around Joe and he proposed a date for the first DD5k planning meeting. The initial DD5k was held on June 18, 2000 and there were 256 registered runners. The event has evolved into three races: a timed 5k, a 3k family walk/run and a 1k event for kids. It is designed to appeal to serious runners, active families, and also to not-so-active families. In 2015, there were 1376 registered runners.
