OUR MISSION

The obesity statistics in Georgia are staggering! Almost 65% of adults are considered overweight with 30% registering as obese, according to the Center for Disease Control’s 2011 findings.

In short, this is why we started the Cantrell Center 5K & Fun Run.

By participating in our annual 5K, you are committing to improving your health, and taking a literal step closer to obliterating obesity within our community. With your continued support, we can reverse these growing numbers.

What makes our 5K different?

Recognizing that obesity and all the associated ills that go with it was running rampant in the south (ad 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 from the start of the 8 week training program 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 5K finish line

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 5K and YOU!
