Join West Houston Assistance Ministries (WHAM) at the 2nd Annual Spring Dash 5K/1K to raise money to fight poverty and hunger in West Houston.

Registered runners will run a safe and appropriately socially-distanced 5K route anywhere, anytime they like, between 12 a.m. on Friday, June 26 through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 28. Enter your final time via the Its Your Race Virtual Race App and be eligible to win a top finisher award! Finish times are on the honor system... please be sure to run a full 5K route. Everyone who registers will receive a finisher medal!
For more fun and excitement, snap a photo before, during, or after your run and tag WHAM on social media using #WHAMSpringDash and @WHAMMinistries and you will be entered to win an Amazon or Target gift card.

West Houston Assistance Ministries provides free, life-changing services that foster self-sufficiency in people who are struggling to meet their basic needs. We feed and clothe children, families, seniors, and the homeless, offer financial aid with rent and utilities to prevent eviction and disconnection of vital services, and provide employment services, education, and training to give the unemployed and underemployed the opportunity to learn new skills so they can find meaningful work. During Covid19, we have helped over 30,000 people with food, financial assistance and employment.
Since 1982, our focus has been to, in the name of Christ, serve those who come to us for help regardless of their background or beliefs, and our programs have contributed to alleviating poverty, building thriving communities, and giving hope to those with nowhere else to turn to.
