Warm up for 5K with former Braves closer
Placeholder Image

Friends of Kelsey Trusty Bishop and members of the Gainesville community can attend a ‘Warm-Up Lap’ at Loco’s Grill and Pub, 601 S. Enota Drive, on Thursday, Sept. 19, in advance of the Kelsey’s Cure 5K Race at the end of the month.

Former Atlanta Braves closer, John Rocker, will sign copies of his new book, “Scars and Strikes.”

The event from 5-9 p.m. will also feature $10 pictures with Rocker, a silent auction and a Georgia’s Own Credit Union coin counter on site for donations. All proceeds will go to Kelsey’s Cure.

Loco’s, at 601 S. Enota Drive in Gainesville, has agreed to donate 10 percent of the food and drink sales from the night to the cause.
