Terry's Run 5K

Eastman, 9:00 AM

“Terry Payne and I (Casey Thomas) have been participating in 5Ks for almost a year. Terry Payne is a very uplifting person who has cerebral palsy and resides in Golden Personal Care Home. I had the privilege of treating Terry at the clinic (Dodge County Physical Therapy). Terry and I decided we wanted to start running races for different causes. We started out in the clinic’s wheelchair. After two runs, we realized it was very difficult to run in races in this wheelchair (the front wheels started shaking if we went more than a brief pace, Terry’s legs were rubbing on the leg rest, etc.). So after having a fundraiser and having many generous donations, we have raised enough money to buy a running wheelchair. We are doing great and now want to take it to the next level by holding our very own 5K.”

All proceeds from the race will be donated to Cerebral Palsy of Georgia and Building Hope of Dodge County.
