The Story Behind Race the Helix

GGC is proud to present a new video sharing the wonderful story of the Shenal family. The video explains how the Greenwood Genetic Center’s compassionate care for their family led Stephen and Jodi to start Race the Helix, an event that is gaining attention through 5K events across South Carolina as well as ‘Treadmill Challenge’ events happening at national and international levels through GGC’s partnership with Front Line Genomics in London. All funds raised through Race the Helix events benefit the GGC Foundation, supporting families like the Shenals everyday.

Take a few minutes to learn about this family’s story, how GGC helped them, and how you can support their efforts through Race the Helix. Click the image below to start the video, you’ll be so glad you did!
