Annual Gunnar 5K - 2019

Race Description

The 4th Annual Remembering Gunnar 5k will be Sat, Jan 19th, 2019. Gunnar was my newborn son; we lost Gunnar at 12 days old due to a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD)/ Surgery Complications. Unfortunately, CHD’s are more common than most are aware.  There is no known cause for most CHDs. More information on CHD’s can be found at

The Annual 5K is a special date, as in our hearts, we are celebrating the birth of Gunnar. This year would of been his 4th Birthday. Child-Loss Grief is unthinkable and since the 1st Annual Gunnar 5K, I have created Gunnar's Runners Racing for more "In Memory of" 5Ks as healing projects for families. Also Paran Baptist Cemetery Committee of Forsyth (PBCC) has initiated a project of restoring a cemetery (Gunnar's Resting Place and many more beloved family members) at Paran Baptist Church Cemetery, located in Forsyth, GA. The proceeds of the Gunnar 5k goes towards this 501(C)3 non-profit organization, as we have many restoration projects to complete. For more information on cemetery please contact Kelly Bourbon, Judy Pettigrew, Franklin & Aimee Freeman, and/or Mr. & Mrs Arthur Brooks. 

The 5K will be held at Paran Baptist Church located at 5641 Highway 42 Forsyth, GA 31029. It's minutes away from High Falls State Park and Dauset Trails. We will have a breakfast brunch after the 5K.

The 5K is a Run, Walk or come to celebrate. Fun Run & Race will start at 9AM.

Prizes: All Registered participants will receive a new and improved medal. Trophies for top 3 male/female.

All post race non-perishable food will be donated to heart families at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Pediatric Cardiac Units. Feel free to bring non-perishable food donations.
