A group of people participate in the costume contest before the 26th annual ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run 5k and 10k that started on Walker Street downtown as part of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo festivities Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, in Houston.
The Rodeo Run raises scholarship funds for Texas youth. Since 1988, ConocoPhillips has donated all Rodeo Run entry fees to the HLSR Educational Fund, totaling $3.3 million to date.
Last year, a record 15,000 participants took part in the Rodeo Run, generating a record $400,000 for college scholarships.
