The Ringgold Rotary Club will be hosting the 2012 Fall Back 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk on Nov. 3. All proceeds will help provide support for the Ringgold Rotary Club’s initiatives throughout the community and to help rebuild a portion of the Ringgold High School’s Athletic Stadium.
Following the storms that occurred on April 27, 2011, Ringgold High School’s Athletic Stadium suffered severe damage. A portion of the race proceeds will be donated to help rebuild the scoreboard area of the stadium. This new scoreboard will consist of a seating area built with the remains of the memorial that was already in place.
The race will begin in the Ringgold High School parking lot at 8:30 a.m. Racers may register the morning of the race, or sign up on active.com.
The race is sponsored by Ringgold Telephone Company, Patty & Young Attorneys at Law, Price Ringgold Drugs, Millennium Medical and Weight Loss Center, Coca-Cola, Northwest Georgia Bank, Simply Mail, Northwest Georgia Dentisry, Georgia Power, K-9 Tub Time, Chuck Tindell, Greased Light’n, mBellish Salon, Weeks & Peters Insurance, Randall Peters, Don Tindell, Inc., Wilson Funeral Home, Katherine Cox OD, DH&W, and Costco.
