Where do the proceeds go?

Recognizing that obesity and all the associated ills that go with it was running rampant in the south (and that Georgia was a leader in obesity in the nation), the Cantrell Center for Physical Therapy &Wellness decided to tackle this difficult issue.

This 5K does not just sign you up and give you a shirt (like other 5Ks), we offer you a jump start to change your life!

During the 8 weeks prior to the 5K, we offer up our resources at no charge to the community!  Below is a list of resources that are offered to each race participant:

-Official Cantrell Center 8 Week Couch to 5K” Walking Program

-Official Cantrell Center 8 Week “Couch to 5K” Run/Walk Program

-Daily encouraging YouTube videos with tips on how to get the most out of training

-“Ask a Trainer”- FREE training advice from our experts up until race day!(All you have to do is call or send us an e-mail.

-Frequently Asked Questions when Training

-Important Things to Remember When Training

-Every month of the year we feature and support a local  Run/Walk Event- because we don’t want your journey to end at the Cantrell Center Run to Lose finish line

 

SO… TO ANSWER THE QUESTION – WHERE DO THE PROCEEDS FROM OUR 5K GO?

The proceeds from our 5K go to many charitable events like:

-Special Olympics
-Golden Olympics
-The Arthritis Foundation
-United in Pink
-The D’Angelo Foundation
-The Children’s Miracle Network
-Cherished Children
-Covenant Care Services

We also support the community schools and churches regularly, but the most important endeavor is to serve the mission of our 5K by giving back into you, the participant by offering the resources listed above. When you understand the statistics on obesity and the comorbidities related to an obese and sedentary lifestyle, you realize how important it becomes for us to improve Georgia’s demographics. Healthy Georgia, Strong America starts right here in Warner Robins, GA with the Cantrell Center Run to Lose event and YOU!
