Woman runs for childhood cancer research



“They came to me and said ‘Mama you can do it’,” Aldridge said.

She began training with friends Cathy Duke and Georgia College professor Dr. Julia Metzker for the marathon in late November. Aldridge runs at least four days per week around the airport area and the recreation department’s track.

GC exercise science professor Dr. Mike Martino helps with training schedule advice as well. The half marathon first timer has incredible backing for fundraising and achieving the physical goal.

Leading up to the event, Chick-fil-A on North Columbia Street will host a Rally Foundation night from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. March 12. The more money raised for cancer research the better.

Aldridge urges the community to attend.

“I would encourage them to show up for Rally. It’s not for me,” Aldridge said. “I want as much money as I can raise to surpass my goal of $6,000.”

Go to and search Wanda Aldridge to make credit card donations. Checks made out to Rally Foundation with Wanda Aldridge Team Brooks in the memo line can be mailed to: Rally Foundation, 5775 Glenridge Drive, Building B, Suite 370, Sandy Springs, Ga. 30328.
