The "Bobcat Ramble" was established in 2005 to promote healthy living and expand educational opportunities of local area students. The ultimate goal of the "Ramble" is to establish an endowed scholarship at GC that will support local students who wish to attend the University and major in a College of Health Sciences degree program. As Georgia's public liberal arts university, we place a great level of importance in serving the community in which we live.
In 2008, the "Bobcat Ramble" was designated as a memoriam to John Bruner. John was a GC cross country athlete who died August 4, 2007, while competing in the Missionary Ridge Road Race in Chattanooga. Each year John's family participates in the "Ramble" and proudly presents the John Bruner Memorial Award to the top male and female student athletes.
