Celebrity Dance Challenge 5K night race set for July
A new 5K will be held in Cedartown on July 22 to help raise money for t he Celebrity Dance Challenge coming up in August.
The walk/run will be in the evening, at 7 p.m., and follow the Silver Comet Trail beginning and ending at the Depot on Main Street.
The festivities will continue in the park after the race with music and food.
The event will raise money for Team Tuck ( Amos Tuck and Emily Tumlin) who will be participating in the Rome Celebrity Dance Challenge on Aug. 5.
All proceeds for this event along with the Celebrity Dance Challenge will go to the Sexual Assault Center of Northwest Georgia that serves our own Polk County as well as Floyd, Chattooga, Gordon and Bartow County.
The Center is very glad to have Polk County represented in the event this year with Amos Tuck being a contestant. Tuck is from Cedartown and graduated from Cedartown High School in 2007.
After attending and serving as a researcher for the University of Georgia, he moved back to northwest Georgia in 2012 and currently works as a Natural Resource Consultant.
Tuck states, “Community service plays an important role in my life. I am proud to be given this opportunity to raise funds to assist in the facilitation of healing for victims of sexual assault and their families.”
Come out and run or walk and join in the fun while supporting this great cause.
