The club’s Board of Directors met recently and selected these five non-profits to receive a $1000 donation from RAW:

  • The Cowtown C.A.L.F. (Children’s Activities for Life & Fitness)
  • Dallas Elite Track Club
  • RISE Adaptive Sports
  • Kids Run the Nation Grant Program – Road Runners Club of America
  • Special Olympics Texas (Area 11-Greater Fort Worth)

Since RAW’s inception in 1997, the club has donated more than $130,000 to non-profits. Recently, the club started a scholarship program that awards a one time scholarship to a Grapevine Colleyville ISD graduating senior or a graduating club member.
