About Pound the Pavement for Peter:

Pound the Pavement for Peter is a Family 5K Fun Run that was started in 2009 in honor of Peter Hopkins, who, suffering from a Peroxisomal Disorder (PBD), lived his life with many disabilities, and eventually lost his life at age 3. This event is held to raise awareness and funds to help families and children with disabilities and debilitating diseases.

In October of 2010, Peter lost his four-year battle with a peroxisomal disorder. During his short time on earth, he touched the lives of every person he came in contact with and will be remembered by all for his beautiful smile and his joyful presence. Children and families struggling with the reality of disabilities and medical fragilities hold a special place in all of our hearts. We are honored to see his life continue to make a difference for families with children with this disease as well as other disabilities through this race.

2022 Beneficiaries

We are proud to continue sharing the proceeds this year to fund 3 critical aspects to realizing the potential and hope for these families – Research, Medical Care and Inclusion in Education.

We cannot think of a better way to honor Peter’s memory, and other children like Peter, than these charities who will enhance the lives of children and families living with severe disabilities.

The specific charities we will support this year are the Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders, The Adaptive Learning Center, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta's Medically Complex Care Program.

The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders (GFPD) was started by parents of children with Peroxisomal Disorders (PBDs) with the mission to assist families in enhancing the lives of children and to support research for the disease that took Peter’s life. Learn more at www.gfpd.org.

The Adaptive Learning Center is one of the few organizations in Georgia that fully integrates children with special needs into typical preschools – with individualized support from special education teachers – they give children with disabilities the opportunity to be educated alongside their peers. The ALC utilizes a holistic approach to assisting infants and children with developmental disabilities and their families. Learn more at www.alckids.org.

The Medically Complex Care Program exists to improve the quality of life for our most complex patients by providing patient- and family-centered care that is comprehensive, collaborative and coordinated. We see children with medical complexity and technology dependence with needs for multiple specialists and significant care coordination. The money raised will go to fund their most pressing needs in helping support these children and families

These are exceptional charities whose missions are to help children like Peter to realize their potential in life, as well as enhance and ease the journey for the child and the family.
