This is our 3rd annual Jog For Joey 5k Run/Walk. Joey Gardner was a 2016 graduate of EPGHS who passed away suddenly in 2017 from ALL (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia). Joey had an impact on the community before his passing through his humble, kind spirit, and love for all those he encountered. All funds raised from this race support The Joey Gardner Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The ninth annual Come Together will be held June 29, 2019. This community event focuses on the fight against ovarian, breast and cervical cancer. The logo is a symbol of efforts in educating all women about these diseases and brings them under one umbrella of education, awareness, screening, and treatment. 100% of the revenue raised will stay in the Decatur community. By participating in this event, you, along with our sponsors, are helping us raise funding for not-for-profit organizations and their gynecological cancer programs.
8:30 a.m. start run/walk (7:15 a..m. events/exhibits).
