Runners and walkers in the metro-Atlanta area have a good reason to get out of a bed on a cold February morning — the fifth annual For the Love of It 5K Run/Walk to benefit children with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS). The inspiration behind the event is 5-year-old Maya, daughter of race organizers Jim and Jen Pomfret.
The event takes place Saturday, February 7,at Medlock Park in Decatur. All proceeds go to the national CdLS Foundation, which provides support and services to families like the Pomfrets. For more info or to register (just $18), contact the Pomfrets at firstname.lastname@example.org.
