Gilmont will host its first Dog Gone Cold Fun Run, Saturday, Feb. 15, at 9 a.m. at Camp Gilmont to benefit special needs children and their families.

For the past 15 years, Gilmont has hosted children with special needs and their families at Circle of Friends Camps.

“These families have so many expenses and stresses, we have always offered these family camps as a ministry, with no charge to the families or the volunteer participants,” commented Program Director James Hilliard. “This benefit run will help us with the costs of these camps and provide a way for the community to get involved with Gilmont’s ministry.”

Gilmont hosts three Circle of Friends camps per year.

The Dog Gone Cold Fun Run will feature a cross country trail for walking or running and a 5k challenge for those who would like to participate in a longer course.

All participants pay $35 and register online by Feb. 1, so T-shirts can be ordered.

All proceeds go to support the families and volunteers at Circle of Friends. Run will be at Gilmont, 6075 State Hwy. 155 N., Gilmer, located six miles northeast of Gilmer on Hwy. 155, toward Lake O’ the Pines.
