CUMMING, Ga. — The inaugural “Kicking Childhood Cancer” 5K/1K and Family Festival was a success, organizers said.

With about 450 runners and participants, “Because God Said,” a local Christian charity, surpassed their fundraising goal.

The 5K/1K race and Family Festival was held Sept. 2, Labor Day, at Fowler Park, 4110 Carolene Way.

“Many Cumming residents were on hand to show their support for the local charity that provides financial services to families who are battling childhood cancer in the Cumming/Forsyth County area,” said Kay Stanley-Rector, one of the organizers.
