About This Activity

THE RIVERFRONT RUN is an annual event presented by the Dougherty County Medical Society as a way for physicians to lead by example and share with their patients the importance of incorporating physical activity and exercise into their daily routines. The 5K (3.1 Mile) and 1 Mile events are both run and walk friendly. "The idea is for people to get moving," said race founder, Dr. Jose Tongol. DCMS is proud to donate a portion of the race proceeds to the Darton College Foundation, Inc., Allied Health Program. Darton College is one of the leading producers of health care professionals within the SW Georgia area.
