Human Trafficking Awareness Big Dipper Dash 5K

Big Dipper Dash 5K ~

September is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. As a member of United Against Human Trafficking (formerly Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition), HGST will be having some important events during September.

One of the coalition’s biggest events is the Big Dipper Dash 5K, which is a fundraiser and awareness campaign for the organization. You can see the information on the event below.

I am hoping to have a large group from HGST participating in the run (obviously, I will not be running! Do I look like a runner?). Recent graduate, Tammy Isaac has agreed to “captain” the HGST team so that we can all be together.

If you register to run, please let me know. ...
