    • Blanchard Wood Park • 4600 Blanchard Woods Rd Evans, GA 30809

    Rock & Run 5k is unique because it's an event supporting nursing home residents who otherwise would not have access to everyday comforts like clothing, blankets or other important quality of life items that cannot be readily funded by the facilities in which they reside. When HELP Can't Wait volunteers also provide programs and activities to nursing home residents to help lift their spirits. Through volunteers, donations and monetary support When HELP Can't Wait will continue to spread these much needed resources to our area nursing home residents. We thank and commend you helping fill this void in the lives of our area nursing residents.
