The 5K Health and Wellness Expo was launched by Dr. Goldson Jr. in 2013

awareness on how natural health strategies can improve the quality of
life. The ‘Run in the Gardens’ will take walkers and runners from Betty
T. Ferguson Recreational Complex across scenic surroundings to Sun Life
Stadium and back.
When asked about the event Dr. Goldson Jr. said, “The reason why we put
on this event is not only to continue my father’s legacy, but to also
stress the importance of education to our youth. My hope is that that
people will come out to support and embrace this effort because we truly
see it as a pathway to building stronger and healthier communities.”
