All proceeds generated from the General 100 Relay Race will benefit The Evitt Foundation. The Evitt Foundation is a 501(c)3 based non-profit organization in Ringgold, GA that promotes child welfare and education.
In 2004 The Evitt Foundation was established to honor the memory and legacy of Ringgold Telephone Company founder, Jim Evitt Sr. During his lifetime, Jim Evitt Sr. was not only just the local pharmacist, a Catoosa County Superior Clerk, and entrepreneur; but he was an instrumental part of numerous projects that made Ringgold a better community.
In 2018, the Evitt Foundation partnered with the Chattanooga Area Food Bank and Ringgold Telephone Company to provide food to over 2,000 families. This food was distributed through 8 mobile food pantries or “free grocery” events, offering families fresh fruits, meats, vegetables and non-perishable food items.
