2017 Fort Worth 5K/10K

The Snowball Express 5K/10K Event

We are delighted to announce the fourth Annual Fort Worth Snowball Express 5K, 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at Trinity Park Pavilion #1 (also known as the Fort Worth Police & Fire Memorial) located at 2300 West 7th Street.  The event will attract runners of all ages and skill levels from around the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.  We invite you to join with Mayor Betsy Price and participate in supporting Snowball Express.

Snowball Express, a non-profit serving the children of our fallen military heroes, is based in Grapevine.  Our mission: Honor America’s fallen military service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice while on active duty since 9/11 by humbly serving the families they left behind and championing their children’s future success by creating opportunities for joy, friendship, education and communal healing by connecting these families to one another.

This December Snowball Express will host the largest gathering in the world of Gold Star families when nearly 1,800 children and surviving parents arrive into our city.  These families, who have suffered similar losses and experiences come together and have each other to understand and share their grief and sorrow.  We honor the memory of each of their fallen heroes and show them the love and gratitude of a grateful nation and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.  This program also gives the host community an opportunity to show their support and let these children know they are loved and not forgotten.
