The Tug McGraw Foundation, named in honor of the former major league baseball star, was established by Tim McGraw, Tug's son. The Foundation raises funds for quality of life research on behalf of brain tumor patients. "We have had widespread interest and support for Team McGraw and we are thrilled to be warming up for another year of raising awareness and funds by running a half-marathon in the home of country music," says Tim, who is the Honorary Chairman of the Tug McGraw Foundation. Team McGraw is continuing to recruit new members to participate in the race. "I'd like to encourage our fans and fans of country music to lace up their shoes and come run or walk with Team McGraw in the Country Music 1/2 Marathon this April," says Jeff McMahon, keyboard player for Tim's band, the Dancehall Doctors. Team McGraw's successful debut in the ING New York City Marathon 2007 raised more than $280,000 for brain tumor research. Tug McGraw died Jan. 5, 2004, from complications from a brain tumor.
