This race is a fast out and back 10k, 5k USATF certified and sanctioned course and 1 mile run/walk which serves as a fundraiser for the Jordan D. Savage Foundation.
The foundation is a 501(c)3 community service organization that is dedicated to honoring and celebrating the life of Jordan Savage by raising funds to provide support to the high school and youth sports programs in our community. Jordan was a passionate and loyal athlete, teammate, NASCAR Fan and Lupus warrior. He was not only an athlete, but many would tell you he was one of the smartest guys in his classes. He also served faithfully in the JROTC, achieving the rank of cadet/Sgt. He was 19 and was on his way to attend Oglethorpe University. We can think of no better way of memorializing his life than to perform services and raise funds to allow young athletes to play, enjoy and excel in the sport of their choice. We also want to raise awareness about the cruel mystery of Lupus and to help find a cure.
