HOUSTON—The Bay Area Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to welcome Mike Ehredt and the Project America Run team to Space Center Houston on Nov. 10 to speak about Project America Run and his journey across America to honor our fallen soldiers from the Afghanistan War. The event will begin at 2:30 in the Zero-G diner at Space Center Houston, and will last 20-25 minutes, ending with a Q&A session and a meet and greet with Mike.
