In March, Fred and Janice Mueller, our CEO and President respectively, participated (along with about 10,000 of their closest friends) in the 30th annual Rodeo Run in downtown Houston. The run precedes the parade which kicks off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the largest event of its kind in the world. Since its inception in 1932, the rodeo has contributed over $430 million to youth scholarships and educational endeavors throughout Texas. Houston energy giant ConocoPhillips, the Rodeo Run’s key sponsor, alone has raised $48 million over the past three decades. In the accompanying photo Janice and Fred, center, are shown just after crossing the finish line.
