Morris Turner 5k Race for 2016
The Morris Doc Turner 5K Run Walk & Health Fair is hosted by the Highland Park Tennis Club, HPTC, in honor of its late, highly esteemed member and friend, Dr. Morris E. Turner. Morris joined HPTC during its inception in 2002. Dr. Turner was an internationally known, scholar, obsterician, gynecologist and educator who held practices and taught in Pittsburgh, Pa and surrounding cities for over 40 years.
Hundreds of thousands of families were healed, blessed, served and delivered in many ways, by Dr. Turner’s skillful hands and words. We are speaking of a man who walked from the Point Breeze area of Pittsburgh to Magee Women’s Hospital in Oakland in the snow to deliver a baby because the roads in the city were paralyzed with several feet of snow and were impassable.
“To Know Him Is To Love Him.”
The event is held to 1) keep Dr. Turner’s name, legacy, mission to educate and serve the underserved alive 2) raise funds to grant HPTC Morris Doc Turner Scholarships to individuals majoring in some aspect of the medical field and to support HPTC’s free summer tennis clinic
