BGC Racing

Brookshire's Grocery Company hosts two races per year, Fresh 15 and Heroes Run.

Fresh 15 began as a way to inspire community members and BGC employees to live healthy and active lifestyles. One hundred percent of proceeds from the Fresh 15 race are donated back into local non-profit organizations.

Heroes Run began as a way to honor and raise money for local first responders and military heroes. As a result, 100% of its profits are donated to the heroes in their community. To date, the event has raised over $1,000,000 for local heroes.

Brookshire’s became a $25,000 member of TEDC when it was organized in 1989. Over the past 33 years, it has invested $800,000 to help support our efforts to grow and diversify the Tyler/Smith County economy.
