About This Activity

Too many of us have been affected by various forms of cancer. Cancer doesn't just damage the body, it devastates families and friends. Often, the financial burden of mounting medical expenses are accompanied by loss of income when the patient and caregiver are no longer able to work away from the home. 

Andy Nichols and his family are suffering this tragedy right now. In May of 2014, Andy was diagnosed with grade 4 Glioblastoma, a very aggressive form of brain cancer. As a lifelong resident of Calhoun County, Andy feels blessed to have the support and encouragement of his family, friends, and the community. Please join Poplar Head Baptist Church as they host a benefit 5K and Fun Run to help Andy and his family as they battle cancer.

Event details and schedule

The "Run for Andy Nichols" 5K will begin at 8:00 CST, immediately followed by the 1 mile Fun Run, at the Train Depot Park in Blountstown, Florida. Portions of this 4-mile trail follow the former Marianna and Blountstown Railroad, which served the area from 1909 to 1972. Connecting Pioneer Settlement with the Apalachicola River, the trail passes through the heart of the charming town of Blountstown, the seat of Calhoun County. A spur trail heads north at Franklin Street, following that street to parallel with CR 17; it ends where CR 17 intersects with 11th Street.This trail is also a segment of the larger Florida National Scenic Trail system. Ample parking is available.
