In 1984, a family lost their son in a fatal car accident.
Thirty-three years later, we continue to remember that son – Kirk Goodwin – in hosting this event while raising funds to support local medical needs. We believe the KGR has great potential in the Abilene community and even greater potential in the west Texas area. Because of our sponsors, charitable donors, and runners, The Kirk Goodwin Run has been providing financial and emotional support to families struggling with significant medical expenses. Over the years, we have raised nearly $200,000.00 for families in need. We would be honored and value your continued support as we expand on our successes to benefit our community in the future.
The Kirk Goodwin Run was started by a group of young men who wanted to continue their brother’s mission to keep God first, others second, and self last. If you’re interested in walking with us in our mission to further this legacy of service - contact us. Every bit of help gives us more opportunity to grow the KGR and serve more people.
Plus, we think we’re fun to work with.
