Rock the Doc honors Dr. Robert J. Dennington, the highly regarded orthodontist. A longtime Little Elm Resident, Doc was an esteemed community leader who served on the Board of the Chamber of Commerce and was the first orthodontist in the town. He passed away from complications of lymphoma on September 23, 2008. This race celebrates our beloved Doc and all that he represented in the community.
All proceeds from this event benefits the Little Elm Area Food Bank.
