The dealership group, with locations in Georgia and Alabama, sponsored the Winship Win The Fight 5K at Atlanta’s Emory University earlier this month.
In its third year, the event – of which Peach State Freightliner serves as a sponsor – attracted 2,800 runners and raised $445,000 for the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
Peach State Freightliner wasn’t content simply attaching its name to the race. The company also fielded 62 runners, three of which placed in their age groups.
For more than 70 years, Winship Cancer Institute says it has worked tirelessly to prevent, treat and cure cancer, and is Georgia’s first and only NCI-designated cancer center.
Even though the race is over, Winship is still accepting donations. You can donate to Peach State Freightliner’s Team and their fundraising goal by clicking here. All donations funnel back to Winship Cancer Institute.
