Two fund-raisers for The Brandon M. Ballard Foundation are scheduled on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 19-20.  The the third annual “Brandon’s Run” will be held Sunday, Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. This two-mile run/walk will start and end at the Rockridge High School front entrance. Registration is $15 per person and includes a t-shirt.  Registration materials are on the internet at www.rockridgeschools.org. Late registration for the run is 11:45-1:45 p.m. Sunday at Rockridge High School.

Saturday there will be a spaghetti dinner held from 5 - 7 p.m. at Ducky's Lagoon in Andalusia. Dinner is $6 per person with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to the foundation. This run is held in memory of Brandon Ballard, who was taken at the early age of 19 from testicular cancer.

Race participants can pick up their packets at the spaghetti supper.  Boothill Ridge will be performing from 7 to 11 p.m. that evening.

All proceeds from the spaghetti dinner and the race are used to help fund a scholarship in Brandon’s name at Rockridge and to purchase testicular cancer educational and awareness materials.
