George and Sarah 5k run/walk

The George & Sarah Gammon 5K Run/Walk For Freedom originated in 2021 as a way to expand our celebration of Juneteenth. The Gammons demonstrated tremendous bravery and compassion in the struggle for equality, freedom and justice by operating a safehouse on the Underground Railroad in Springfield, Ohio during the 1850s.
