The teen organizer of a 5K run and walk that will be held Dec. 12 at Rock Creek Park plans to donate proceeds to Dawson County Family Connection. With initiatives to target underage drinking and childhood literacy, as well as a variety of others aimed at improving families in the community, "Family Connection helps out so many different areas in the county," said 14-year-old Jarod Posey, a freshman at Dawson County High School. Nancy Stites, director of Family Connection, said she was thrilled to learn of Jarod's plan to support the organization, which is part of a statewide initiative of community collaborative partnerships committed to making measurable improvements for children and families in Georgia.
