Welcome to the 2015 Fourth Annual Mel T. Ingram Memorial 5K Family Walk/Run.



Thank you for visiting the annual Mel T. Ingram Memorial 5K Run/Walk website. This site was developed to help honor the lives of deceased brothers the late Lt. Col. (Ret.) Mel T. Ingram and Willie R. (Bill) Ingram of Milledgeville, Ga.

The annual run/walk was established to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and money to support the Willie R. (Bill) Ingram and Lt. Col. (Ret.) Melvin Ingram, USMC, Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships annually to full-time students pursuing an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, NROTC or chemistry.

According to the Center for Disease and Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Therefore, we encourage you to make a difference in your life and the lives of others by joining the race against heart disease.
