About one-third of the adult homeless population are veterans, most are Vietnam Vets. It’s time for America to do more than just say thank you and the Houston Apartment Association is doing just that!

Over 375 attendees both adults and kids came out on a chilly day, February 11 for the first-ever Houston Apartment Association Fun Run and Walk. With both a 1K and 5K route, their was a route for the serious runner as well as the casual walker.

All proceeds for this event benefited the Post-Traumatic Stress Foundation of America in honor of Clay Hunt, son of HAA board member and past president Stacy Hunt, Greystar, and all affected service men and women.

Fun Run Committee Chair and HAA General Counsel Howard Bookstaff, noted ” It was great to see all these folks both young and old come out for a family friendly event and to support the PTSD Foundation. These veterans deserve our respect and support and we were happy to donate over $27,000 to help provide housing for these heroes”.

The event would not have been possible without the support of these generous HAA members.
