DUBLIN, OH – PRIME Principal Nanda Nair’s running organization 2FGR (2 Fat Guys Running) was recently recognized in the Columbus Cityscene Magazine. For the past five years, Nair’s organization has put on the 2FGR Down Syndrome 5K and Fun Run.
Nair’s annual event, scheduled this year for May 22nd at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, has raised over $140,000; approximately two-thirds of which has gone toward Down Syndrome causes. For this year’s event, the club aims to raise $50,000 and hopes to draw upwards of 1,000 participants.
“2FGR started seven years ago,” Nair says. “The vision began as starting a 5K race to give back to a cause while promoting health, community and family values within the Dublin area.”
Today, members can join 2FGR daily, usually at 5:30 a.m., for a run around Dublin. The running group encourages people of different fitness levels, ages and capabilities to join for free. To learn more about joining 2FGR or to sign up for the Down Syndrome 5K/Fun Run visit their website: 2fgr.com.
