Participants pay tribute to Nathan Robertson with brief stop on 5K journey

THOMASTON — One by one, and sometimes two by two, they stopped briefly on their 3.1-mile trek around the town to pay their respects, to say a heartfelt hello and goodbye to Nathan Robertson at his final resting place.

It was a unique and fitting show of love, support and appreciation for a young person whose life was cut short much to early.

The streets were filled with runners and walkers on Sunday morning, Aug. 13 for the initial Nathan Robertson Memorial 5-kilometer road race, as participants, organizers and volunteers came together to remember and honor a lost family member and friend.

Robertson was a 2006 Georges Valley High School graduate who played soccer, basketball and baseball for the Buccaneers. He passed away in 2008 after a three-year battle with desmoplastic small round cell tumor.
