When I first came to work for the KWA, one of the issues I was asked to address was the number of charity runs held in our neighborhood. “How many could there be?” I asked myself. So we started keeping a calendar of events. From May 2012 to December 2012 there were 21 charity runs in the neighborhood. After reviewing this information with the board and noting that KWA wanted to support our business partners such as HEB and City-sponsored runs such as the Rock-n-Roll Marathon, it was agreed to ask for a maximum of five charity runs and to encourage different routes so the same streets would not be impacted every time.
