ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Tuesday morning the Pecan City Pedalers Bicycle Club presented a check for $3500 to the Creekside Educational Center at the Parks at Chehaw.

Radar, Chehaw's favorite screech owl, looked on wisely during the check presentation.

The money was raised at the 5th Annual Nut Roll, a bicycle race sponsored by the Pedalers.

Almost 300 riders from across the South competed in the event and raised a record amount for Chehaw.

Pecan City Pedalers President Jim Anne Brett said "We like Chehaw because it helps people of all ages in the community. The school child can come for field trips and end of school parties. Parents can bring their young children to the park, have picnics and spend the day."

In the five years of the Nut Roll, the Pecan City Pedalers have raised nearly $10,000 for educational programs at Chehaw.
