G Texas Catering Hosts Texas 4000 Riders

G Texas Catering had the pleasure of hosting the Texas 4000 Rocky Mountain group for lunch on June 2. Texas 4000 is a committed charitable group of college students from the University of Texas who annually fundraise, plan for, train for and subsequently ride their bicycles all the way from Austin,Texas to Anchorage, Alaska!

Their ride begins on Memorial Day weekend and is completed by Labor Day weekend. Planning, fundraising and training takes an entire year. During this time, each rider must raise a minimum of $5,000 most of which is donated to cancer fighting causes all along their travel route. While in Dallas, they stopped to have lunch at the Gilley’s Jack Daniel’s Saloon and then trekked toUT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where the students presented a check for $50,000 which will be used to promote genetic research in targeting leukemia.

G Texas is proud to do their part supporting these athletes as they work towards a cure for cancer.
