Focused on families, businesses, and individuals, this unique health initiative is a WIN-WIN for the entire community. By participating in the 9th Annual Cantrell Center 5K & Fun Run presented by Boland Prosthetic & Orthotic Center, you have quite literally taken the first steps toward fighting a national epidemic, obesity. With your continued support, we will continue to fight toward reversing the growing statistics of obesity in Georgia… and across the country.

What makes our 5K different?
Recognizing that obesity and all the associated ills that go with it was running rampant in the south (and that Georgia was a leader in obesity in the nation), the Cantrell Center for Physical Therapy & Wellness decided to tackle this difficult issue.
This 5K does not just sign you up and give you a shirt (like other 5Ks), we offer you a jump start to change your life!
During the 8 weeks prior to the 5K, we offer up our resources at no charge to the community! Below is a list of resources that are offered to each race participant:
-Official Cantrell Center 8 Week Couch to 5K” Walking Program
-Official Cantrell Center 8 Week “Couch to 5K” Run/Walk Program
–“Ask a Trainer”- FREE training advice from our experts up until race day!(All you have to do is call or send us an e-mail.
-Frequently Asked Questions when Training
-Important Things to Remember When Training
-Every month of the year we feature and support a local Run/Walk Event- because we don’t want your journey to end at the Cantrell Center finish line
Where do the proceeds go?
100% of the proceeds from the 10th Annual Cantrell Center 5K & Fun Run will benefit your local Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health, part of the Children’s Miracle Network.
The proceeds from our 5K in previous years have benefited many charitable events including:
-The Arthritis Foundation
-United in Pink
-The D’Angelo Foundation
-The Children’s Miracle Network
-Covenant Care Services
Community Support & “Race Row”
The Cantrell Center is proud to highlight several races throughout the year as a way to encourage participants to keep up the momentum even after they cross the Cantrell Center 5K’s finish line. We proudly feature local run/walk events on our website, our online calendar, and our monthly newsletter year-round.
In addition, on the day of the Cantrell Center 5K, we offer space affectionately referred to as “Race Row” to other walk/run events to inspire participants to keep moving! These local events then have a chance to register participants for their race while our participants commit to keeping active— it’s a win-win!
The most important endeavor is to serve the mission of our 5K by giving back into you, the participant by offering the resources listed above. When you understand the statistics on obesity and the comorbidities related to an obese and sedentary lifestyle, you realize how important it becomes for us to improve Georgia’s demographics. Healthy Georgia, Strong America starts right here in Warner Robins, GA with the Cantrell Center event and YOU!
