Southern AgCredit Runs the Race for Children’s Cancer Center
This past December, Southern AgCredit’s Fit for Agriculture Half Marathon raised $30,000 for the Mississippi Children’s Cancer Center at the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children in Jackson, Mississippi.
For the fifth consecutive year, Southern AgCredit organized a unique racing experience to promote healthy lifestyle awareness and to contribute money to the hospital, which is a part of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
A total of 912 registrants and volunteers from several states participated in the event to support the only place in the state that provides comprehensive care for children with cancer or blood related diseases.
“Our mission with Fit for Agriculture is to bring awareness of a good healthy lifestyle to as many peoples as possible, while also helping children with cancer,” said Joe Mallard, Southern AgCredit’s Senior Development Officer.
