Texas Scottish Rite Hospital For Children
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is one of the nation’s leading pediatric centers for the treatment of orthopedic conditions and sports injuries, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia. Since 1997, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has been the primary beneficiary of the BMW Dallas Marathon and has received more than $3.9 million in donations. The BMW Dallas Marathon Charity Program and partners also contribute to the great work done at TSRHC each year.
Junior Race Director
Each year, a Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patient serves as the Junior Race Director for the BMW Dallas Marathon, representing the thousands of children treated at the hospital. In this role, the Junior Race Director helps participants and sponsors understand how TSRHC benefits from the support of friends like the marathon.
Starting in 2007, several Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patients offered to help represent the many bright faces treated at the hospital by becoming a patient champion. The patient champion program is a way for the community to participate in race-weekend activities and fundraise on behalf of a patient.
