Dr. Koonce put up a Take the Lake 2013 "team" poster in his Whiteville orthodontics office so that any of his patients who want to do one or more of the Take the Lake Personal Endurance Challenges can write down their names and show everyone just how cool they are about fitness.
They then officially register right here at Takethelake.org.
He already has nine people on the list, most of whom are training for the Walk / Run. When they complete the PECs this Labor Day weekend, they'll then fill in the badges and have a place on the Koonce Team Ortho wall of fame!
