The steps you take help someone else take steps toward ending homelessness!
On January 26, 2013, a cold Saturday morning in Atlanta, thousands of men, women and children are going to take to the streets of downtown Atlanta to run a 5k road race in the bitter cold. The city of Atlanta is home to over 8,000 homeless individuals, people who face the perilous conditions of winter without a roof over their heads.
The Atlanta Mission serves over 1,000 of these men, women and children every single day. The downtown men’s shelter alone is a refuge for over 400 men on a daily basis. We hope you will join us this January as donors, volunteers, community members and Atlanta Mission clients run side by side in a race to end homelessness.
Your registration fee and fundraising supports:
To start your registration process click the button below, or click here. First giving allows you to tell your friends, family, associates and social networks about your support of Atlanta Mission. Additionally, we ask you to fund raise for this great cause. All registration fees and donations go directly to Atlanta Mission. Your voice is just as important as your legs!
Your support for those running on January 26th will help those facing homelessness to take steps of courageous faith toward ending homelessness in their life. Our vision is to make the Atlanta Mission 5K the city's largest homeless awareness event and expect over 1,000 runners this year. Together, we are making that possible. Your support directly helps thousands of men, women and children that stay at Atlanta Mission each night. Your fundraising support will help us to reach our goal of $75,000 dollars by January 26th. The challenge is great but our solution is possible. Together, with your help, we can end homelessness.
We can still use your help, by telling others about the Atlanta Mission 5K we extend the voice for those that have no voice.
We are excited to announce some enhancements to this year’s race:
