The Braden Aboud Annual Memorial Run/Walk
This annual event, sponsored by The El Paso Times and Hyundai of El Paso, attracted more than 11,000 participants in 2016 and is now one of the largest youth-centered competitive 5K races in the nation. The Run/Walk takes place each May and is a morning of family and community fun that many look forward to each year.
Schools, teams and organizations that attend in groups can receive grant funding for their participation. In 2016, a total of $100,170 was given back to 137 schools, teams and organizations as grant funding for their participation in the Run/Walk to help sustain their many programs.
