The Easton Goad Foundation will host its second annual 5K Run/Walk in Red Boiling Springs this Saturday, October 22, in an effort to raise funds for families with children battling life threatening illnesses. 


The race will begin at 8 a.m. - rain or shine, with registration to kick off at 6:30 a.m., at the RBS City Park near the historic hotels.

Runners, walkers, strollers and wheelchairs are welcome in the race with 1st, 2nd & 3rd place medals to be awarded in each category (male and female) and in the stroller/wheelchair division. First, second and third place plaques will also be given to the overall male and female winners.

Water stations will be provided for 5K participants, and the registration fee is $20. 

The Easton Goad Foundation was formed in June 2015, just three months after 14-month-old Easton Jedediah Goad passed away following a long battle with leukemia and a bone marrow transplant.

His parents Leslie and Jed Goad, established the EGF to carry on Easton’s legacy and help families who are going through a situation they are all too familiar with.

With your support, the foundation was able to donate $5,000 to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, donate $5,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville, provide financial assistance to families of children with life threatening illnesses and serve meals at the Ronald McDonald House in 2015. 

“Thank you to everyone for supporting EGF,” said Leslie. “We can’t wait to see you at the race!”
