Weatherford’s 2020 Virtual Walkathon Raises $381K for Houston Nonprofits
Heim, Payne & Chorush is a proud supporter of Weatherford International’s annual Weatherford Walks fundraiser. Although this year’s walkathon was forced to go virtual because of the pandemic, participants still logged nearly 3,300 miles throughout the entire month of November to raise awareness and more than $381,000 for four Houston-area nonprofits. Since its inception, Weatherford Walks has raised more than $2.28 million for the Houston community.
Each of the Houston-based charities make a significant impact on individuals and neighborhoods across the Houston community. This year’s recipients included:
- The Houston Area Women’s Center, which helps individuals affected by domestic and sexual violence in their efforts to move their lives forward, was the beneficiary of the inaugural Weatherford Walks in 2014.
- Camp Hope provides peer support, mentoring services, and housing for veterans and their families suffering from combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Small Steps Nurturing Center is dedicated to the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth of economically at-risk children and their families.
- Spindletop Charities, Inc. provides aid to programs targeting child abuse prevention, pediatric medical research, drug and alcohol abuse prevention and rehabilitation, education and scholarships, school safety, therapeutic services, after-school programs, and family health.
