The Big Texas Rally for Recovery, held on September 29th, had over 2,000 in attendance.  There was talented entertainment, activities and snacks for the children, Super Heroes and Mascots, food trucks, and people from across the state of Texas celebrating recovery on the riverwalk.  A special thank you to our sponsors, exhibitors, and volunteers who helped make this event amazing!  See you next year in Ft. Worth!
