Amerisource again sponsored the Walk for the Woods Project on April 11, 2015, a 5k journey through Houston’s historic East End. The route included “history stops” along a beautiful undeveloped area of Buffalo Bayou, where walkers could stop and learn a bit about this historic area.
Not only was the walk a fun and unique experience, it is also the flagship fundraising event for The Woods Project, a wilderness and exploration program created to help develop and foster critical behaviors and skills for disadvantaged students, to help them achieve success in school and life.
“This was a great cause to help children in the Houston community,” said Tori Loucks, Amerisource team member. “The day was exciting from start to finish and ended with live music, games and food trucks!”
This was the third year that Amerisource sponsored Walk for the Woods. The event raised over $200,000 and will benefit over 750 students in need. Thank you to all the team members who came out to participate in the event!
