WE DON’T FALL INTO OUR POTENTIAL. WE RISE INTO IT.
TEAM FX is a step beyond your ordinary, competitive, for-profit marathon and half-marathon training group! We are a diverse group of adventurous, socially conscious men & women, who partner with local business leaders to help end the cycle of child abuse & neglect in our own community. We do that by offering extremely low-cost, “couch-to-race” training to achieve (at any pace) the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon (race day is Sunday, February 19, 2017), while generating awareness and raising funds for the Austin Children’s Shelter. Since our debut, a total of 248 team members have helped spread the word, completed ten marathons and half-marathons, raised over $300,000, and was awarded the 2016 Austin Marathon’s most prestigious award, “The David Doolittle Memorial Cup”, for excellence in community service. It’s a clear and proven WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone involved!
THE TEAM FX COMMUNITY – We are here as an example of the challenges and rewards that can be achieved when we liberate the highest potential of our minds, our bodies and our spirit. We are unified in our vision, our goals and our commitments. TEAM FX members are labeled only as HEROES and are treated as such. There is no fast or slow, strong or weak, rich or poor, professional or amateur, thin or obese, young or old, republican or democrat, black or white, gay or straight, male or female. We are all simply heroes bringing our uniqueness and highest potential together to become true neighbors, to benefit the well-being of ourselves and our community.
