About Pound the Pavement for Peter:
Pound the Pavement for Peter is a Family 5K Fun Run that was started in 2009 in honor of Peter Hopkins, who, suffering from a Peroxisomal Disorder (PBD), lived his life with many disabilities, and eventually lost his life at age 3. This event is held to raise awareness and funds to help families and children with disabilities and debilitating diseases.
In October of 2010, Peter lost his four-year battle with a peroxisomal disorder. During his short time on earth, he touched the lives of every person he came in contact with and will be remembered by all for his beautiful smile and his joyful presence. Children and families struggling with the reality of disabilities and medical fragilities hold a special place in all of our hearts. We are honored to see his life continue to make a difference for families with children with this disease as well as other disabilities through this race.
Based upon the success of this race in past years, we are overjoyed to announce that we will continue to sharing the proceeds this year to fund 3 critical aspects to realizing the potential and hope for these families – Research, Medical Care and Inclusion in Education. We cannot think of a better way to honor Peter’s memory and other children like Peter than these charities who will enhance the lives of children and families living with severe disabilities.
The specific charities we will support this year are the Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders, The Adaptive Learning Center, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta's Medically Complex Care Program.
The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders (www.thegfpd.org)
The Adaptive Learning Center (www.adaptivelearningcenter.org)
Medically Complex Care Program at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (www.choa.org).
