The National Hershey’s Track and Field Program is the largest youth sports program of its kind in North America. The games promote physical exercise as a regular part of childhood, with the hope that the participants will develop long term exercise habits for a more healthy life. It began in 1975, and the Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation has been a generous sponsor of the games since 2000.
The Houston Parks and Recreation Department (H.P.A.R.D.) stewards and manages over 37,851 acres of parkland and greenspace for the City of Houston and develops and implements recreational programming for citizens of all abilities.
