Our goal is to bring awareness to domestic violence in our communities, and to raise money for our local shelters. Tina Davis, along with her nieces, Lindsey Phillips and Tiffani Willingham, host Tina’s Cat Run, an annual 5K/1 mile benefit road race, in beautiful downtown Ball Ground GA, every year on the third Saturday of October. The proceeds from these events benefit the Cherokee Family Violence Center (CFVC) and the North Georgia Mountain Crisis Network (NGMCN).

Cat Run Inc, established in 2018, is a nonprofit, charitable organization. Our goal is to raise money, and offer support to our local shelters. We strive to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence in our communities.
How it all started....On February 12, 2018, Tina was the victim of a horrific domestic violence attack. Her estranged husband broke into her home and shot her seven times with a .40 caliber pistol. It’s only by the grace of God that she survived!! While Tina was hospitalized, Tiffani told her sister Lindsey (both of whom are Tina’s nieces) that she really wanted to do something for Aunt Tina, but she didn’t know what she could do. Lindsey suggested that Tiffani think about it, pray about it, and sleep on it, and something would come to her. The next morning Tiffani got up and said, “We’re going to do a benefit road race, and we’re going to call it Tina’s Cat Run”, (because Tina’s a cat person). Tiffani’s intent was for the proceeds of the race to help Tina and go toward her medical expenses. But when she and Lindsey presented the idea to Tina, Tina suggested that the race benefit the local domestic violence shelters instead. That would be a way of ‘paying forward’ all the love, support, and prayers that she had received after the shooting, and during her recovery.
Since the first Tina’s Cat Run on October 20, 2018, we have hosted the benefit road race every year. We have been able to donate several thousand dollars each year, to be split equally between the Cherokee Family Violence Center and the North Georgia Mountain Crisis Network. In addition to the annual road race, Tina never passes up an opportunity to speak, to share her miraculous story of survival and perseverance, and to lift up and praise an ALMIGHTY GOD.
