Ready. Set. Run. Rain or shine, Reinhardt University will hold its 4th annual ‘Born to Run 5K’ on Saturday, Sept. 15 in downtown Canton.

The annual 5K is a part of an annual effort to raise money for Cherokee Scholars (formerly known as ADay for Reinhardt), which aids in the funding for the University’s Cherokee County Grant Program. This grant program helps provide support for Cherokee County students attending Reinhardt University, providing scholarships and pushing Cherokee County residents forward in their future.

The race will be located in Cannon Park in downtown Canton at 130 East Main Street. Pre-registration is $25, and registration after September 6 will be $30. Registration for runners age 12 and under will be $15. If unable to attend or run on race day, Support a student for $25. Race day registration will begin at 7 a.m. and the race will begin at 8 a.m.  Early registration packet pickup will be Sept. 14 from 3-6 p.m. at Northside Cherokee Hospital, 450 Northside Cherokee Blvd., Canton.

“This fundraiser is an excellent opportunity for the community to support Cherokee County students,” said Dale Morrissey, director of development and external relations for Reinhardt University. “We have great sponsorship opportunities available and registration is open for the fun-filled, family event. The great part about it all is that it raises scholarship money for students right here in Cherokee County.”
