TCU Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility 

3000 Stadium Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76129

Relay THIS Saturday!  We cannot wait to see you there!

 

Hello Relay For Life or Fort Worth Participants, just 1 day until Relay!

 

Your Event Leadership Team has been really working hard the past couple days changing our location and making it one of the best events we have ever had. Here are some additional details for Saturday.

 

The event is being moved to the TCU SAM BAUGH INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITY 3000 STADIUM DRIVE (corner of Stadium and Bellaire), Fort Worth, TX. This is roughly ¾ of a mile from our original location. Please refer to the detailed map below for unloading, parking and shuttle instructions.

 

We are still encouraging our teams to act like this event is outdoors, so feel free to bring your canopy tents, decorations and anything else you would bring to Relay with you. Additionally, because we are indoors, each campsite will get an 8 foot table provided by your Relay for Life Event Staff. If you need additional tables, you will have to provide them.

 

There is electricity on the walls of the facility, so if you need power for your onsite fundraiser, you will have it. You will need to bring extension cord.

 

Below you will find the following:

  • TCU map with unloading, parking and shuttle instructions.
  • The list of onsite fundraisers by team
  • Updated schedule of events
  • Relay day supply list
