Martin Ruffing and Joseph Petitone were both awarded 1st place winners for their division.

Run Like A Warrior 5K

It was a beautiful day with over 80 runners and walkers. The organization raised just over $3000 for the Westafer family, including but not limited to a Overhead Door Company of Atlanta sponsorship from Team Impact, which is an internal group that empowers local employees to be involved with volunteerism and charitable activities.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the race and those who donated to this cause. On behalf of the Overhead Door Company of Atlanta and all it’s employees, we wish Andy and Chandra all the best with her recovery and continued health.
