Thomasville 6K Patriot Run 2015
You don’t have to be a runner to participate in the Thomasville 6K Patriot Run 2015. Walkers are welcome to join in, too. The run/walk will take place at the beautiful Myrtlewood Plantation. This will probably be the prettiest 6K you will ever enjoy. Rolling hills, lakeside views and tree-lined roads greet runners and walkers alike along their journey. Then, at the end, a big party will be thrown in every participant’s honor. Some people will even win prizes and awards for their part in the race. Refreshments will help you build your strength back up.
Proceeds from the Thomasville 6K Patriot Run 2015 will benefit the Senior Chief David “Blake” McLendon Scholarship Fund. This fund is overseen by the Community Foundation of South Georgia. Every year, the McLendon Scholarship Fund awards money to a Thomasville area high school student that exemplifies what a true citizen of the community means. Every candidate shows a dedication to both their school and community. This scholarship was created in honor of Senior Chief David “Blake” McLendon. Senior Chief McLendon grew up in Thomasville. He was a graduate of Thomas County Central High. In 1998, he enlisted in the US Navy. He spent over a decade of his life in service to our country, receiving dozens of awards along the way.
