About This Activity

This is a race that will allow the runner to enjoy beautiful scenery while knowing that all the money that is gathered from this event will be given to Canal Lake Bible Camp. In the town of Blairsville, Georgia, surrounded by mountains is a camp. This camp has been around for over 50 years providing a place for children from ages seven to eighteen to come and feel special and to learn about the love of Jesus. Because of the economic downturn that many families are facing, this camp has been free of charge for the past seven years for any child that desires to register. To continue to run the camp at no cost to the campers and their families, events, such as this, have been organized and ran. After the race, you will not only have the good feeling of good exercise, but you will also have the feeling that you helped out a cause that helps children.

This year is special to the Canal Lake Bible Camp family, because this race will be in memory of our friend Don Cummings. Every year we have hosted this event, Don has been there to run and support the camp. Last year, Don passed away due to cancer, leaving behind his wife and two daughters, who also help make this camp happen so that kids can learn about Jesus. The Canal Lake Bible Camp family decided to dedicate this race in honor of Don for his support that he showed during his life and for the legacy that he is leaving behind.

Anyone who registers before April 9th will receive a t-shirt about the event.
