The North Texas Community Giving Foundation, in partnership with The Tug McGraw Foundation, is excited to present the Gigabytes on Saturday, April 15th, performing (at 6:45am) the National Anthem at the second annual Texas Big Star Half Marathon &5K. What started last year as the first endurance running event for the City of Frisco continues this year with an all-new course and Start/Finish. Of course, our wildly popular post-race Finisher Fest and beautiful medals and runner recognition awards return. The second year of this race is sure to be bigger and better than the first and something you do not want to miss.

Come visit the Septien Entertainment Group’s booth in the Finisher’s Fest area from 7am-12pm. Come by to meet the Gigabytes, some of our amazing teachers and to learn more about our Summer Music Camp, Home Schooled “Lessons To Fit Your Schedule” Program and the Special Promotion for the day’s events – you can win free voice lessons! There will be food trucks and other vendors – lots of things to do and learn. We hope to see you there.
The North Texas Community Giving Foundation (NTCGF) was born from a few individuals who wanted to make a positive impact in their community. NTCGF is dedicated to making an impact in North Texas by supporting local nonprofit organizations who align with our vision of improving the health, education, and welfare of our community. As a result of last year’s Texas Big Star Half Marathon & 5k, NTCGF provided (1) $20,000 in grants to 10 charitable organizations, (2) $37,500 to TMF to further its mission, and (3) an avenue for 5 charity partners to raise approximately $5,000 for their organizations.
The Tug McGraw Foundation (TMF) was established by Tug McGraw in 2003 to raise funds to enhance the quality of life of children and adults with brain tumors and their families by stimulating and facilitating research that addresses the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual impact of the disease. Recognizing that other areas of brain research – such as traumatic brain injury and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – inform the science surrounding brain cancer, TMF has widened its scope to include a broader spectrum of the neuroscience to support advances in medical care and quality of life for our nation’s battle-wounded, ill and injured service members.
