5K Run for Gabe

Heritage High School and the Cross Country Booster Club are hosting a 5K Fun Run to raise scholarship money to honor our fallen teammate and Coyote, Gabbriel Atao.  Gabe was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in January 2017 at the age of 17.  He was an exceptional student-athlete who was loved by all.  Not only was he a member of the Heritage High School Varsity Cross Country team and Varsity Track team, but he excelled academically as well.  He was a member of the National Honor Society, DECA, student council, and the list goes on.  He volunteered countless hours in our community.  Heritage High School will honor Gabe’s legacy by offering a scholarship in his name through the Frisco Education Foundation from this year forward.

In order to provide a quality event, we are in need of participation from the members of our community.  Our inaugural 5K Race, Gabbriel Atao Memorial Run, will be held on April 23, 2017 at Frisco Commons Park.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could attach the provided flyer to your newsletters and webpage to encourage your school to participate in this worthy cause.  We would like to provide at least one scholarship this year and your assistance will go a long way to ensure that Gabe’s legacy will continue to live on through us.

You will register online, please go to the following website:

In order to be guaranteed a shirt you will need to register by April 9, 2017.

We sincerely appreciate your consideration of our request and look forward to a successful event.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Coach Kathleen Moroney at or 214-912-9895
