2018 TX Run/Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases
March 17, 2018 (4-8 PM)
Welcome to the Lymphie Strong site. Normally you would find my most recent blog posts on lymphedema here, but we are gearing up for March which is Lymphedema Awareness Month with March 6th as World Lymphedema Day™ for the Lymphatic Education & Research Network.
I am proud to serve as a volunteer Texas Co-Chair for LE&RN. Lymphedema has run in my family for 113 years, and we want to find a cure.
George Ranch Historical Park
This year it is my honor and pleasure to invite you to bring your families, friends, caregivers, and neighbors to the inaugural Richmond, TX Run/Walk held at the Texas heritage landmark George Ranch Historical Park for a unique TX Fandango experience!
Our event comes complete with outside and inside activities including a Cowboy chuckwagon, tractor tram hay ride, meeting our sponsors, and our LE&RN Walk. The Walk will be followed by a light dinner held in an air conditioned wood floor TX dance hall originally built in 1911. This is a beautiful authentic venue, and it is sure to be a family oriented Texas heritage event for both patients and their families to enjoy.
Directions to the George Ranch
The George Ranch Historical Park is located just 30 miles southwest of downtown Houston. Take US 59 South; Exit Grand Parkway/ Hwy 99. Turn left (south) at the traffic light on Crabb River Road (FM 2759). The Park’s main entrance is located 6 miles down the road on the right.

Texas Our Texas
Texas fun facts include a population of over 28M. As the second largest state in the entire United States, both in population and geography, the TX LE&RN Chapter invites all Texans to participate in person or virtually. Whether you live in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Victoria, Corpus Christi, Midland, or anywhere in between, please join us for a day of statewide solidarity. Ya sea que viva en El Paso, Brownsville, McAllen, Edinburg o Harlingen, únase a nosotros en la lucha contra el linfedema y las enfermedades linfáticas.
If you don’t live in Texas, don’t worry. The origin of Texas’ name was originally “Tejas” which meant “friends.” We invite our friends in the lymphedema community in other states and around the world to join us in this event virtually or via a donation. So, put on your boots or shoes, bring your pet, grab your friends, and head out on a course of your choosing – through the neighborhood, on a community track, or through the park. Then tell us about your run/walk at our page, the Lymphatic Education & Research Network, Texas Chapter.
Wishing you great lymphatic health,
