Health Science Center helps fuel Cowtown success
A record 22,089 runners participated in this year’s Cowtown races. The UNT Health Science Center, which founded the race, sponsored the event’s half marathon, and 195 UNTHSC faculty, staff and students volunteered in various capacities contributing to the three-day event’s success. Volunteers helped by participating on the medical crew, as well as UNT Health Fair, UNTHSC expo booth, course monitoring, T-shirt handout and packet pick-up.
The event benefits CALF (Children’s Activities for Life & Fitness). Last year, the Cowtown gave more than 600 grants to underprivileged youth and more than 500 pairs of New Balance shoes to youngsters in need.
