3rd Annual
RUn for a dream 5K & 1M Fun run



Landon Padgett Memorial Fund is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Run for a Dream 5K & 1M Fun Run - a morning of fun for the whole family!  You can walk, run, jog or dance your way through the family-friendly 5K and 1M courses which wind through the Bleckley County 5K cross-country trails.  Once you pass the finish line, meet us at the game field for lots of family activities including:


  • inflatable bouncers provided by Big Mike's Inflatables

  • a coloring activity for the kids

  • corn hole and other games

  • face painting

  • popcorn and cotton candy (for purchase)

This event was born from Landon's love of running and the children and families he served as a nurse at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.  All proceeds from this fundraising event support our two programs benefiting the health and well-being of children and young people.  

A virtual runner option is available for those who can't make it to Cochran but still want to participate.
