Race Information

This 5K is to honor the life of Jerry  Carroll, who lost his battle with a rare and terminal disease known as  Multiple System Atrophy (MSA).

Jerry was a loving husband, father,  brother, uncle, and friend to so many and is deeply missed. He enjoyed  life and loved to be active. Whether he was golfing, jogging/biking,  coaching his kids in sports, or enjoying a family vacation, you could  always find him outdoors. Jerry was one of the most charismatic and  friendly guys around; you could usually catch him with a gentle smile  and nod, as he enjoyed the company of his family and friends within the  North Forsyth community and metro Atlanta area.

It is our family’s goal to help increase  awareness of MSA and to raise funds needed for research in the form of  “seed money” to fund grant proposals for the MSA Alliance Foundation.   We encourage you to come out and celebrate the life of Jerry and help  Defeat MSA!
