Georgia Military College Team Participates in 2014 Soldier Marathon
Thirty-two Georgia Military College students, faculty, and staff members traveled from campuses in Augusta, Valdosta, Warner Robins, Milledgeville, and Columbus, to participate in the 2014 Soldier Marathon November 8.
GMC Columbus Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Jared Lee of Columbus placed 18th overall in the half marathon out of 996 participants. Lee was excited to compete in the Soldier Half Marathon because “these events . . . promote healthy lifestyles and encourage communities to come together.” Lee added, “I was so excited to hear that Georgia Military College would cover my registration fees. I think it demonstrates GMC’s commitment to the community and it offers students and employees opportunities to stay healthy."
MC’s Vice President of Human Resources, Jill Robbins of Milledgeville, GA, “loved the opportunity to run with our students, staff and faculty from other campuses.” Robbins competed in the half marathon and considers physical activity to be “a great way to bond, and since our campuses are so spread out across the state, it was a great opportunity to reconnect while getting in some great exercise.”
GMC Columbus Library Associate Bailey Carter of Columbus, who helped organize GMC’s participation in the Soldier Marathon events, believes that “having students, faculty, and staff from multiple campuses come together and share their love of running helps foster unity among the branches of the institution.” Carter continued, “GMC is excited to demonstrate its presence in our community by supporting initiatives like the Soldier Marathon. We look forward to growing our team a

In addition to benefitting students, facu

ll as the House of Heroes—an organization that helps soldiers rebuild their homes.
