The countdown to Run for Lawson has begun! Less than two weeks until Tallahassee runners of every age dust off their sneakers for our third annual benefit run on Sept. 28 at 8 a.m. Participants will enjoy a winding, cross-country course that spans across Holy Comforter Episcopal School and the stunning Welaunee Plantation grounds.
Similar to previous years, proceeds raised will benefit the National Meningitis Association and contribute to raising local awareness about bacterial meningitis prevention. But this year’s race has a new twist – in an effort to bring attention to the need for meningitis booster vaccinations between the ages of 16 and 21, and with support and direction from Leon County School Board Superintendent Jackie Pons and Divisional Director of Professional Standards Dr. T. Alan Cox, The Lawson Mayfield Memorial Foundation is teaming up with Leon County Schools to increase awareness and education about meningitis prevention. In addition to distributing promotional and educational materials, the foundation will be awarding cash prizes to the top three schools with the highest attendance at Run For Lawson.
So what are you waiting for? If you love running, supporting great causes and can’t wait to win cash prizes for your school, register as a runner today!
