In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Third Annual Trafigura Home Run Returns on Saturday, December 1st
Benefitting Ronald McDonald House Houston

HOUSTON, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lace up your sneakers! It's time for the third annual Trafigura Home Run, benefitting Ronald McDonald House Houston which provides loving, home-like environments to families with seriously ill children being treated in Texas Medical Center member institutions. This 10K run and 5K run/family walk takes place on Saturday, December 1st at Buffalo Bayou Linear Park on Allen Parkway and Sabine Street.


The 10K run begins at 7:30AM and the 5K run begins at 7:45AM; both are USATF certified. The 5K family walk also begins at 7:45AM and is open to families and dogs and will be led by RMH Houston resident dog Mogie. Both races culminate at Buffalo Bayou Linear Park with an award ceremony and family-friendly after party for all participants and spectators, emceed by Natalie Bomke of Fox26 News.

Near and dear to the heart of Trafigura's Houston office, the Ronald McDonald House has been a home away from home to several employees – Christian Diaz and Bruce Mann among them–, while their children were ill. Christian and Sandra Diaz stayed at the Texas Children's Hospital house while their six year old daughter underwent brain surgery. Bruce and his wife Abby stayed at the RMH Houston House inside Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital when their twins were born four months early.

"With so much on our minds, we did not want to leave our daughter, but having a place to rest inside the hospital was very comforting for my family. Being able to share moments with other families that were experiencing the same pain, having a home cooked meal, and all the little things we take for granted were given by caring staff at Ronald McDonald House Houston," said Christian and Sandra Diaz.

The Manns echoed a similar experience. "Your donations to this charity change people's lives and allow parents to spend more time with their children.  I can't tell you how much it meant to my wife and me to have hundreds of hours of additional time with both our son and daughter because of RMH Houston," said Bruce and Abby.

The fee for all runs is $35 and each runner will receive a commemorative t-shirt. Packet pickup will be at Luke's Locker located at 1953 West Gray on November 29-30. Registration is also available the day of the race from 6:30-7:00 am at Buffalo Bayou Linear Park. To register, visit and search for "Houston's Ronald McDonald House" in the upcoming events.  For more Trafigura Home Run information, visit
