Relay for Life

Timberview Middle School is super-excited and honored to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life on May 2nd at the Keller Athletic Complex.


At the event, we will have the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and learn more about how to fight back against cancer. While we are raising needed funds, we will also raise awareness of the importance of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and patient support.


We would love for you to show your TMS Hawk family pride by joining our team, volunteering, or donating to the cause.


We would also like to HONOR all our SURVIVORS AND CAREGIVERS who have faced their personal fight against a disease that has taken too much. Please email either Kris Harris or Cheryl Parten if you would like to participate in a special event at the Relay for Life in honor of YOU.

Casey's Kids Fun Run

Proceeds from the 5K run benefit KISD families in need. All proceeds are kept locally and distributed by KISD School Counselors.

The event began as an idea by long-time KISD counselor Janie Casey who wanted to create a way for families to support each other by providing monetary donations toward purchasing necessities for KISD students in need, all while providing an outlet for enjoyment, exercise, and socialization. The result was a "Fun Run" where families could participate together to support a worthy and noble cause.

Early registration is due by Wednesday, April 29 to guarantee a Casey's Kids Fun Run t-shirt, but late registration will be accepted up until 7:15 a.m. the day of the event. The Casey's Kids Fun Run will begin at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, May 16, and will be held at the KISD Natatorium, 1000 Bear Creek Parkway.
