Horizon Health will host a three mile scholarship race. It’s in honor of a doctor who served the Paris, Illinois community for many years.

The Doc Acklin Race will take place on Saturday, August 31 at 7:30 a.m. central time at Paris High School. It’s located at 14040 E. 1200th Road in Paris.

The race is open to all skill levels from walkers to fast runners.

The cost is $10 for the race or $20 if you also want a t-shirt.

You can register the morning of the event.

The money raised provides two $1,000 Doc Acklin Healthcare Scholarships for students interest in the medical field.
