The date has been set for the 10th annual Nun Run from Houston to Galveston, and already dozens are making plans for the annual charity ride benefitting the Christus Foundation on Saturday, Oct. 24, rain or shine.

The run begins at the St. Austin Center, 2002 S. Wayside Drive in Houston and ends at the Lone Star Flight Museum, 2002 Terminal Drive in Galveston. The registration fee is $50 and includes a T-shirt. Sponsors include JSC Space Riders, The Blue Knights, Retreads Motorcycle Clubs and Christian Motorcyclists Association.

The 50-mile, Blue Knights escorted, charity motorcycle ride benefits children from low-income families who are in need of health care. Last year, 15,000 children received medical care from one of the many Christus Foundation for HealthCare programs and clinics that have the mission to Keep Children Healthy.

Registration and breakfast are at 9 a.m. Oct. 24 in Houston with entertainment by Easy Money, followed by the Blessing and Kick Stands Up at 10:30 a.m. Lunch and an awards party are planned at the Flight Museum at noon.
