Woodforest Charity 5k 2020

This virtual walk/run may be completed any time of the day during the race period, anywhere in the United States. Participants are asked to run or walk the 5K route of their choice – even a treadmill. For the past ten years this run was held on site in Conroe, Texas at Heritage Park in partnership with the City of Conroe.

“This is the first year our annual charity run will be open to everyone across the nation in a virtual format to respect social distancing,” said Jay Dreibelbis, President and CEO, Woodforest National Bank. “We look forward to welcoming race participants to celebrate our 40th anniversary in a creative way. With many people working or going to school remotely this is a fun option to promote health and wellness for a wonderful cause,” he said.




As always, net proceeds from the run will benefit the Woodforest Charitable Foundation®. To register, please visit To learn more about the event, visit
