Journey To Health

 The Clarksville Running Club held its sixth annual Wilma Rudolph 5K and 10K races on June 25, 2011.

Thanks to the Faith Family Medical’s “Journey to Health” program, the women of Magdalene participated in – and completed! – a 5K, beginning at the Sango United Methodist Church, Clarksville, TN.

Jeff Wolfe, the Program Director for Journey to Health, worked with and trained the women for approximately three months. The Clarksville Running Club sponsored the race fees.  Fleet Feet gave us shoes and other incentives.  De Feet provided socks for $1.50 per pair (which usually cost $10!).  Girls on the Run and the Nashville Striders provided us with shirts, clothing, tons of moral support AND they plan on doing more in the future.

We want to thank Jeff, Marci (a volunteer at Faith Family Medical), Shelly (a graduate of the Journey to Health program who also completed the 5K with us), the Fleet Feet staff, the Clarksville Running Club, De Feet, Girls on the Run and the Nashville Striders for their dedication to a great cause.

What a great accomplishment for all of us!
