Health organizations join for race series

August 25, 2005

Albany -- Albany health organizations come together to promote fitness.

 The Southwest Georgia Cancer Coalition, Albany YMCA, and Phoebe Foundation announced they are joining to sponsor runs this fall, and will call them the TriSouth Georgia Road Race Series.

Doctors and health workers say physical fitness helps people stay healthy. Oncologist Dr. Jose Tongol said "Diabetes, hypertension, heart attacks, strokes, and cancer. 35 percent of cancer related disease are related to unhealthy lifestyle."

The RiverFront Run will be held October 15th. The Chili Run November 12th, and the Jingle Bell Jog December Third, to make up the three race series.

 People who run all three will be given special recognition T-Shirts.
