Muddy Trails Bash Highlights TWFG’s Mission of Caring

By Paul Lazzaro

THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Gordy Bunch, TWFG president and CEO and The Woodlands Financial Group are community winners even before the 2016 TWFG Muddy Trails Bash series of fun-runs kicks off on Saturday, April 2.

“This is one of the most popular kids’ events in a community built for kids and families,” Bunch said. “TWFG’s slogan states that ‘Our Policy is Caring,’ and Muddy Trails Bash is just one of multiple community events we support because they combine physical fitness with fun.”

Bunch says caring for your community is integral to doing business in the community.

“TWFG was founded in The Woodlands. We live in The Woodlands. We operate our national business from our Woodlands headquarters here in Town Center. Muddy Trails Bash is only one of the ways we demonstrate the sincerity of our company and our employees to thank and benefit all Woodlands’ families.”

As an IronMan participant and sponsor, Gordy believes in physical fitness, which is why TWFG’s philosophy of giving centers on fitness and healthy living. TWFG is also title sponsor for the Gran Fondo bicycle race benefitting the Houston Medical Center Orchestra and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. TWFG supports The Woodlands Marathon, and a host of charitable organizations.

Other beneficiaries of TWFG’s “Caring” policy are American Heart Association, Susan G. Breast Cancer Foundation, Barnabus Group, Interfaith of The Woodlands, Toys for Tots, CASA Child Advocacy, College of the Ozarks, University of North Texas, Texas A&M University, University of Houston-Downtown Advisory Board; The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council; Fellowship of Christian Athletes; Texas Rush (Kid’s Soccer), The Women’s Center, Young Life, The Woodlands United Methodist Church, and JROTC.

The 2016 TWFG Muddy Trails Bash events take place from 3 to 8 p.m. at the George Mitchell Nature Preserve, Rob Fleming Park in the Village of Creekside Park. Organizers have announced all events will be run “rain or shine.”

A crawfish plates and Zydeco music feast follow timed 5K and 10K races for ages 10 and older, Little Muddy Kids one-mile Fun Run for ages 5 and up, and even a 2K Dog Fun Run for the whole family.
