ELIZABETHTON, TN (WJHL) -The Carter County community is coming together for the 4th Annual Race for Wandell.
Organizers said the race is the only 3K certified race in the state of Tennessee.
The event is set for September 17th, 2016 at East Side Elementary School in Elizabethton. The competitive race will begin at 10:00 am and will be followed by a fun run/walk at 10:30 am.
All of the money raised from the 2016 Race for Wandell will go directly to Dr. Josh Wandell (the former principal of East Side) and his ongoing medical costs.
Dr. Josh Wandell was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease in June 2013.
The original diagnosis comes with a life expectancy of two to five years. Josh, his wife Tabitha, and their children, Jayla, Taylor and JT passed the three year anniversary of his diagnosis in June 2016.
