May 31st was a blast!
Thanks for joining hundreds of walkers, joggers and runners on Saturday, May 31, 2014, as we honored Connor Gage with a 5k and one mile run / walk. The Honor Connor 5k and Smile Mile started at Birdville High and wound its way through the trails of HomeTown in North Richland Hills, Texas. This year's run benefits The LV Project and other worthy organizations including Touch A Life Foundation and Feet That Move. Run with STRENGTH. Run with PURPOSE. And run with A SMILE!
The Honor Connor Run course map winds its way around a route that Connor loved to run. Connor was a runner, and spent many days running these trails around Birdville High and the lakes in his HomeTown neighborhood. This race is USATF sanctioned and the course is USATF certified.
The Honor Connor Run for Connor Gage will take place on Saturday, May 31st, rain or shine, at Birdville High School, corner of Mid-Cities and Precinct Line. The 1 mile fun run / walk (untimed) will begin at 8:00am. The 5k (timed and untimed) will begin at 8:30am.

The Honor Connor Run is named for Connor Gage, a 15-year old freshman, who died tragically in a drowning accident in 2012. Connor was a wonderful son, brother and friend, who is greatly missed. He was known for his big smile and his love of running. The Honor Connor Run is brought to you from The LV Project, which was founded by the Gage family to honor the life of Connor. The LV Project is dedicated to projects that help people LiVe and LoVe buoyantly, on lakes and in life.
Connor loved to run, and because of you, he's still running. In fact, thanks to your support, he's been all over the world. We've never seen him run so far. It's been a blessing to put the funds from the 2013 Honor Connor Run to use for projects that help others LiVe buoyantly. Here are some of the things you've made possible. Thank you.
Like last year, this year's run proceeds will benefit The LV Project, Touch A Life Foundation, Feet That Move and other worthy organizations.
