Columbia, SC – The MGC Long Run raised $31,446.90 for USO South Carolina. The USO South Carolina is a nonprofit organization that The USO strengthens America's military service members by connecting them to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation. The donation is a result of the 2016 MGC Long Run 15k, 15k Relay, 5k and Kids’ Fun Run that took place on Feb. 6.

This year’s race had over 850 runners and walkers and over 125 volunteers. The Long Run was presented by McAngus Goudelock & Courie, a regional insurance defense firm headquartered in Columbia. The Not-So-Long Run 5k was presented by Midlands Orthopaedics, P.A.
