More than 870 people hit the track at the Coweta County Fairgrounds during the RACE for the Orphans. The event, which took place on May 5, raises money for local families attempting to adopt children domestically and overseas. According to RACE co-founder Kelly Preston, the non-profit organization collected $43,000 last weekend. That amount is $10,000 more than the group raised in 2017.
