TMCO continues its partnership with the Gran Fondo bicycle race and annual event benefiting TMCO and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. A recommended ride for the BP MS150, which occurs only a few weeks later, the Gran Fondo follows the European gran fondo style with interval starts based on skill level and distances of 100+, 65+, and 40+ distances.
The Gran Fondo bike ride has been ridden for 2016. Information and registration for the 2017 ride can be found at GranFondoTexasTmco.com
TWFG Gran Fondo Texas TMCO Bike Ride Reaches $75,000 Record Donations

At TWFG offices in The Woodlands on Thursday, May 26, 2016, members of the event’s Steering Committee presented checks to the two charities totaling $75,000. "These are very generous donations," stated Alan Fritsche, orchestra board member, accepting on behalf of the orchestra. "These funds will allow the orchestra to continue providing first class concert music at minimal cost to those who attend their concerts." The TMCO plays in concert halls, such as the Hobby Centers, Zilka Hall and the Wortham Center in Houston, as well as hospitals, including the Methodist Hospital Houston. Smaller ensembles play at nursing homes, medical facilities and other hospital settings throughout the Houston area. Read More Here
