United Way

The United Way of Gordon County has set Unity Run XXI for Tuesday, Sept. 30, with the 1K Kids Run beginning at 5 p.m. and the 5K Run/Walk beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Vickie Spence, executive director of the United Way of Gordon County, is hoping the later date will attract more participants.

“Last year it rained but I think we had around 800 cross the finish lines,” said Spence. “I am expecting more this year. With the run being the last possible day in September, the weather should be cooler. I always want 1,000 runners to cross the finish line of the 1K and 5K combined.”
