2016 RACE TO SAVE HEARTS
December 17, 2016

This race was the final event in the 2016 Grand Prix Series. Overall race winners were Gage Hicks and Wilson Jenerette. New to the race this year was a mixed-gender family category that had six pairs enter in the Mr & Mrs, Father & Daughter and Cousins division. Cousins Alex Hick & Sara Millar were the first to finish in this category.

This race was started in 2010 in honor of Tammy McFall who died at age 50 of heart disease. Tammy’s daughter and former high school cross-country runner, Rachel McFall, volunteered for the event and helped present the awards.

The net proceeds of just over $1,200 from the race will be donated to the American Heart Association by the Grand Strand Running Club. Sponsorship support came from Batteries + Bulbs, Wyman Wise State Farm Insurance, Martin Wealth Management – Wells Fargo Adivsors and Jeff Linta Roofing. Refreshments were provided by Z’ Amazing Kitchen, Food Lion, Walmart, Krogers and Lowe’s Foods.
