Makenzee Page wins it all at the Get-A-Mammy 5K

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. On 28 September 2013, with October just days away, Get-A-Mammy, inc., staged Valdosta's third annual Get-A-Mammy 5K--the race that reminds women everywhere to "Get a mammy!" That is, a mammogram.


Thirteen-year-old Makenzee Page won the 3.1-mile race, turning in a 22:28. Valdosta master runner Debbie Green was the runner-up in the race, finishing 18 seconds back in 22:46.


After the ladies had taken the first two places, Valdosta master runners Nate Simmons and Mark Steele finished a fraction of a second apart, with Simmons narrowly taking third place overall. Both runners were clocked in 25:05.


The Get-A-Mammy 5K benefits Get-A-Mammy, Inc., a non-profit whose programs include providing and administering funds for free mammograms to those who need financial assistance in obtaining a mammogram. 78 athletes finished the 2013 edition of the race.
