McLeod Sports Medicine Scholarship Run 5k/10k

Florence, SC

During the early 1990’s, McLeod Sports Medicine established the McLeod Sports Medicine Heart Challenge, where participants were able to be involved in a race that would benefit personal health. The Heart Challenge was also established to raise money for the McLeod Athletic Excellence Award. The award was soon renamed the Geoffrey Kier Memorial Athletic Excellence Scholarship to honor the memory of the former McLeod employee who died of meningitis in 1998. Today, this race continues the tradition of raising money for deserving student-athletes in the Pee Dee region. Geoffrey’s mother, Sally, continues to donate to the scholarship fund to keep their sons’memory alive. This is the 25th Anniversary of this event so do not miss out on one of the oldest road races in the area.

The race is on St. Patrick's Day this year so make sure to WEAR GREEN and celebrate with us!
