The Peachtree City Running Club has donated a significant amount of money to the city to pay for the replacement of a water fountain damaged by vandalism.

The $5,700 check will pay for a brand-new fountain at Huddleston Pond. It was presented to the City Council by PTCRC President Kim Ruple.

The club is hopeful that someone will step forward and provide information on the person who damaged the previous fountain, forcing it out of service. A $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the damage.

The running club has donated the fountains to the city over the past 20 years as a public service to the community.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call police at 7 70-487-8866 or the crime and narcotics information hotline at 770-487-6010. Callers may remain anonymous.
