RUn for a dream 5k & 1m Fun Run


Thank you for your patience while we worked to reschedule this event.  It will now take place on Saturday, December 5, 2020.  


The inaugural Run for a Dream 5K & 1M Fun Run celebrates the life of Landon Padgett - an exceptional and dedicated nurse, talented musician and incredible athlete.  This event was born from Landon's love of running,  his hometown of Cochran and the children and families he served as a nurse at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Both the 5K and 1M Fun Run will wind through the beautiful trails of the Bleckley County 5K cross-country course - the same trails Landon ran in high school.  


We'll have refreshments, a raffle for great prizes, age-group awards ceremony and musical performances.  All proceeds fund our two programs benefiting the health and well-being of children and young people.
