Gordon Hospital Run for Your Life
Race around the Rec

More than 140 women (and some men) are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Gordon County. This number is well above the state and national averages. The Gordon Hospital Foundation is thrilled to raise funds to assist in providing breast cancer services for the greater Northwest Georgia community.

The proceeds from the 5k Run for Your Life help fund breast cancer services at Gordon Hospital, including the construction of the Edna Owens Women's Center at Gordon Hospital, scheduled to break ground in October 2018. 


Race shirts and other goodies will be proved to all participants. Sign up, come out and run or walk, and make a real difference in peoples' lives!
