ON SATURDAY, MAY 5 LifeSouth Community Blood Centers is sponsoring a "Five Points of Life Kids' Marathon" at Cool-Ray Field, home of the Gwinnett Braves. Kids in grades K-12 are eligible. Participants must register at www.fivepointsoflife.org or 352.224.1728.
Georgia State Senator Renee Unterman will be there for the sart.
REGISTRATION IS FREE! Refreshments will be available.
All participants will receive a Five Points of Life Marathon medal and a commemorative tee-shirt. Kids will not run a marathon, just the last 1.2 miles as if they had done so. Part of the running course will be the baseball field itself!
The goal is to promote good health through physical activity and to teach youngsters the "Five Points of Life", five ways they can help save lives when they are old enough to do so.
The "Five Points" are - blood donation, platelets, bone marrow, cord blood, and organ/tissue donation.
