As part of our focus on education, ConocoPhillips is proud to sponsor the Rodeo Run. This 10K and 5K run through downtown Houston kicks off the Houston Livestock Show and RodeoTM Parade in front of thousands of cheering spectators while raising funds to support the education of Texas youth.

The 2017 Rodeo Run, which marked the event’s 30th year, had more than 9,500 participants. Each year, the Run’s entry fees benefit the Houston Livestock Show and RodeoTM Educational Fund, which provides scholarships and other educational opportunities to deserving students across the Lone Star State. ConocoPhillips’ contributions and volunteer support during the event’s 30-year history have allowed us to raise more than $5 million for education.

“Since 1988, the Rodeo Run, presented by ConocoPhillips has supported Texas students by supporting the Show’s Educational Fund,” said Joel Cowley, Show president and chief executive officer. “We are grateful to have partners like ConocoPhillips that share in our goal of supporting the youth of Texas.”
