The 8th Annual Strides for Schools Fun Run took place Saturday, April 29 at the Clyde Abshier Stadium in Deer Park, the birthplace of Texas. Shell Deer Park is proud to sponsor this community event each year because of the great impact it has on the teachers and students in and around the City of Deer Park. This year, there were an estimated 2,100 participants who ran or walked the course.
In addition to the main event, our very own 7 Mile Perimeter Band performed. The band is comprised of nine Shell Employees and played a series of classic rock and roll to get the crowd going while they waited for their fellow runners and walkers to make their way through the finish line.
As Shell Deer Park continues to be the presenting sponsor of this event, we are proud to contribute and invest in our surrounding community by supporting grants for teachers in the school district. This event was able to bring in over $175,000 to the Deer Park Education Foundation this year.
