March 28-- The third annual Chick-fil-A Vidalia Road Race earlier this month attracted 485 runners and 28 teams and exceeded its fundraising goals for this summer's WinShape Camp and the Paul Anderson Youth Home in Vidalia.
This year's goal was to raise $10,000 for each organization, as shown at the check presentation, however, the race raised more than expected and both groups are receiving $11,628.
Representatives from local businesses sponsoring this year’s event presented the checks to each organization at a luncheon hosted by Britt McDade, owner/operator of Chick-fil-A Vidalia. The sponsoring businesses along with Chick-fil-A Vidalia are ZORN Insight, Spivey Orthopedic Clinic, South Georgia Radiology Associates and Ameris Bank.
Britt McDade commented, “What a great pleasure it is to continue the partnerships that our Chick-fil-A Founder was so passionate about. S. Truett Cathy was the first donor to the Paul Anderson Youth Home and he commonly referred to it as his “second favorite charity.” The first, which he founded, is WinShape Camps, an extension of the vision for ‘Shaping Winners’ that he had so long ago. “
