Community Outreach
Charitable Contributions

The GDTC has donated funds and materials to numerous local charitable organizations.

Volunteering Within the Community

The GDTC has partnered with the Sonshine Soup Kitchen to volunteer bimonthly.  We make and serve dinner for anyone in the community who needs a meal.

Community Events

Couch to 5K program: In 2012 , the GDTC created a FREE couch to 5k program. We started in the fall with employees of Parkland hospital and organized one the following spring to anyone in the community.  Our program provides instruction on stretching, running form, pacing, clothing, and diet.  We have had over 100 people graduate from our program and look forward to instructing many more.


The community relations group is in charge of soliciting businesses for financial and product sponsorship for our events.  100% of our proceeds from our races go to our charity partners, the Sonshine Soup Kitchen, Upper Room, St Jude's and St Thomas Aquinas food pantries, and the Liberty House.  We have been donating thousands of dollars per year to these charities since 2011.


We assist in the promotion of our events including advertising, distributing fliers, press releases, and social media.
