Dr. Kathryn Calhoun of Atlanta Center for Reproductive Medicine Pounds the Pavement for Peter

The Sixth Annual Pound the Pavement for Peter 5K raised over $120,000 to support children and families affected by debilitating diseases.

Atlanta, GA - The Sixth Annual Pound the Pavement for Peter took place Saturday, March 28, 2015 at Capital City Club Brookhaven. The event includes a Family Fun Run that was started in 2009 in honor of the life of Peter Hopkins, who suffered from a peroxisomal biogenesis disorder (PBD), a rare genetic condition that affects all major systems of the body. Peter passed away just before his fourth birthday, but during his short life he touched the lives of every person he came in contact with and is remembered for his joy and smile.

 

Dr. Kathryn Calhoun, a board certified reproductive endocrinologist at Atlanta Center for Reproductive Medicine, was one of those people who was touched by Peter. Peter’s mother, Anne Park Hopkins, is a longtime friend of Dr. Calhoun. For the past three years, Dr. Calhoun has served on the race planning committee.

This event is important to me as a parent and a medical professional,” said Dr. Calhoun, “but it is particularly poignant because the race continues to honor my friends and their son, Peter Hopkins, who was afflicted with a peroxisomal disorder.”

The event raised over $120,000 this year, which is a record for the event. These funds will benefit three organizations: The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders, The Adaptive Learning Center, and The Pediatric Palliative Care Center at CHOA. All organizations serve to help realize the potential and hope for families affected by PBD.

Overall, the event was a success to raise awareness and funds to help families and children with disabilities and debilitating diseases. Dr. Calhoun and ACRM are proud to support this wonderful event in honor of Peter Hopkins and all families affected by debilitating diseases.

About Dancing Stars of Atlanta

Dancing Stars is an exciting benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter. Reinventing the popular show, “Dancing with the Stars”, this fundraising event is comprised of approximately 12 local celebrity dancers paired with 12 professional dancers, all raising funds by gaining votes! Then the dancers come together to compete in a one night gala dance competition, it’s an event you do not want to miss!

Dancing Stars aim is to support research and the programs and services provided for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, as well as their families and caregivers. Presently, someone develops Alzheimer's every 67 seconds, and this disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the country and the only one that is increasing. Without your support, the Alzheimer's Association will cease to aid those who are affected by this devastating disease.

Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.
