August 2016 Newsletter
Thank you for a wonderful year so far!

Join us for the best trail run Dallas has to offer!

Do you enjoy running over hills, rocks and the occasional patch of mud? This year's Rugged & Raw 10K/20K Trail Run is less than two months away and registration is still open! The challenging course is popular among trail runners and the opportunity to race at Cedar Ridge Preserve - Audubon Dallas doesn't happen often. In fact, the race sells out every year!  Register today and join us on Saturday, October 1 for one of the best trail runs Dallas has to offer!
Make your dollars go even further on #NTXGivingDay!

The eighth annual North Texas Giving Day is back on September 22, 2016 and aims to set yet another national
record! Donate to BoMF on the Giving Day site and remember that gifts of $25 or more will be multiplied by $2.5 million in bonus funds and prizes when you give through between 6 a.m. and midnight! Additionally, thanks to two wonderful anonymous donors, donations made to BoMF on #NTXGivingDay will be matched 50 cents for every dollar, up to $12,500! It's a win-win for everyone!
