About GCF

Kirk Goodwin Run

March 25, 2023

The Kirk Goodwin Run started in 1984. During pledging Kirk Goodwin, a member of Galaxy, tragically passed away. His friends decided to plan an event to raise money for the hospital and burial fees. They developed the Kirk Goodwin 5k which has continued every year since. This year we have chosen to partner and support Cindy Roper, read more about her story below.

Cindy Roper's Story

This year, our beneficiary is Dr. Cindy Roper. Cindy is a professor in the Department of Communication and Sociology at Abilene Christian University. She has served the ACU community as a professor for the past 30 years, and her colleagues and students often describe her as passionate, kind, and empathetic. Last year, Cindy suffered from a rare spinal stroke that left her paralyzed from the waist down. All proceeds from this year's race will help pay for Cindy's accumulated medical bills. Our goal is to help ease the burden on Cindy during this difficult time and we would love for you to join us. 

There are two ways you can get involved: by donating to Cindy through GCF or by signing up for the race!
