      55 athletes showed up to the YMCA Sports Park on Saturday to participate in the second Heals and Wheels Duathlon that organizers hope raised around $7,000.

      Participants began with a run followed by a leg of cycling then completed the race with another run.

      Winners were awarded medals for their efforts that helped an Easter Seals Southern Georgia program called Megan's House, a home for children with developmental disabilities.
