Dallas-based Children's Health is celebrating a nice donation from a North Texas Athlete.

Since graduating from Dallas Jesuit in 2011, Jordan Spieth has gone on to be one of the biggest names on the PGA tour.

Now, Spieth and his wife Annie are giving $500,000 to the Children's Medical Center foundation and the money is earmarked for an expansion at Children's Medical Center Plano, with a focus on pediatric oncology.

The Jordan Spieth Family Foundation is based on four pillars -- those with special needs; junior golf; military families and veterans; and pediatric cancer.

For the announcement, the Spieths were joined by long-time friend Eric Leyendecker who is a childhood cancer survivor.
