AUBURN, Ala. - Former Auburn football standout Justin Garrett knows the second lap of the 800 meters is going to be painful.

“I haven’t run track since high school,” said Garrett, a linebacker from 2011-15.

The 800 is the tenth and final event of The Chicago D10, a national athletic tour founded by former Auburn runner Dave Maloney that raises money for pediatric cancer research. Garrett will compete Aug. 5 at Lane Tech.

“Being able to put my athletic abilities to use for a greater good, instead of personal accolades and glory, to help out pediatric cancer patients, to save lives,” Garrett said.
