Friends of Frances

Friends of Frances (FOF) is a 501c3 organization founded to garner awareness for rare genetic diseases and individuals with special needs. FOF was founded in honor of a brave and beautiful girl, Frances Brown who was born with Macrocephally-Capillary Malformation (M-CM), a multiple malformation syndrome causing abnormal head and body overgrowth and abnormalities of the skin, vascular system, brain and limbs. Her tenacity to overcome adversity with everyday life was an inspiration that resulted in a community of friends coming together to promote awareness of and provide assistance to children like Frances who live with rare diseases and special needs. Proceeds benefit the purchase of adaptive equiptment for children with special needs or for the privision of specialized theraypy for physcal development.

Project Lifting Spirits

Project Lifting Spirits works with various Fort Gordon entities and the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Augusta, Georgia to provide items of appreciation to our veterans, deployed troops and the wounded service members stationed here. Our goal is to provide these service men/women with various items of appreciation for all of their hard work and sacrifices in order to provide us with the safety and security that we all take for granted. Currently, we are doing bingo nights and ice cream socials on a monthly basis at the VA Hospital Uptown Division and are looking at what we will be able to do for the Downtown Division. Additionally, as funds allow, we purchase and provide hygiene items that are needed. On Fort Gordon, we have been providing cards and meals to them as funds allow.

The Augusta Sports Council is the local host organization for the Augusta University Half Marathon, 10K & 5K.

The Augusta University Half, 10K & 5K courses are USATF certified and are qualifiers for the AJC Peachtree Road Race!
