RUN FOR HEALTH 8TH ANNUAL 5K Run on Nov.13, 2021 in Clear Lake/Nassau Bay, TX
Run 3.1 miles in honor of our founder and Race Director David Sabot.
For David, running was an escape because he didn’t think of anything else when he ran. David said, “I enjoy the mental challenge that running presents; when the mind says you’re out of breath, you’re tired, you want to stop, but you know the body can continue-and you can WILL your mind and body to keep going.”
Mr. Sabot’s professional career required him to have a tough mental and physical acuity as a commercial pilot. David always brought with him his running shoes and gear when flying to run wherever he went.
David started Run For Health 5K event in 2013 after being one of the statistically 3% survival rate in his age group. It was a traumatic event of bilateral pulmonary embolism that emanated from a tight cast on his leg a week prior. He would not have lived if it had not been his dedication of running routinely three miles three times a week.
This event will be held at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church,18220 Upper Bay Road, Houston (Nassau Bay), TX 77058. Race starts at 7:15 a.m. and you run through the beautiful park along Clear Lake, TX.
David lost his 2-year battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on May 11, 2021. Our goal is to have 1,000 runners this year. He raised over $57K from his races in the past 7 years. 100% of the proceed benefits Anchor Point, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to champion the future of children.
He ran his last 2 miles on March 16 and passed away on May 11, 2021. We will miss a great leader and race director who started his races 100% on time. Please sign up for this race in his HONOR.
