Benefit 5K race and 1 Mile fun walk in Athens

There will be a benefit 5K race and one mile fun walk in Athens, Tennessee. Mark your calendars for March 23, 2013. There is an early bird registration fee of $20. After that the registration goes up to $25. The money will go to help a young woman with her medical costs. Even if you register early, you may still want to include the extra $5.

The benefit 5K race and one-mile fun walk is a way for the community to give back.  There will be prizes for individuals and for teams who register. Plus, anyone who donates $25 or more gets a free t-shirt. The real reason to participate is to help someone who needs it.

BenchMark Physical Therapy is helping one of their own by putting the benefit 5K race/ one mile fun walk together. This is the second time that they have helped me overcome a health challenge. I know them and trust them. When they told me about the 5K race and one mile benefit, I felt compelled to blog about it.

A young woman on the BenchMark team is facing an extreme health crisis. I don't want to give out her personal information but I can tell you that she joined the team  in 2011. Since then, she worked her way into the hearts of the community and is highly regarded among her co-workers.

Proceeds are deposited into a special account at Regions Bank in Athens. Race forms are available on the Facebook page of You can also email for more information.

The 5K race in Athens is an important benefit. I am happy to help spread the word about the event. Can you help by sending a check, Tweeting about it or by posting to your status? I think that the young woman will appreciate your support.
