Be a part of the Sunshine Kids Team on Sunday, January 13, 2013!
For the fourth year in a row, the Sunshine Kids Foundation has been selected as an official charity of the Chevron Houston Marathon’s Run for a Reason Campaign. The past three years have been a huge success as friends and supporters raised over $100,000 for young cancer patients from across the country.
