This will be a weekend like no other in south metro Atlanta. Our HEROES WEEKEND is dedicated to benefiting the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT and supporting our veterans. Saturday September 15th will start with the HEROES WARRIOR RUMBLE motorcycle run and will continue that evening at Camp Fortson with packet pickup, spaghetti dinner, campfire and entertainment...lodging available onsite through Camp Fortson website. On Sunday morning, September 16th, we will begin the HEROES 1/2 with the National Anthem and a fly over by US ARMY HELICOPTERS. There will be music, water, a static helicopter display AND active duty soldiers to motivate you at the half way point. After the HEROES 1/2 is completed we will have a 45 second film honoring local veterans that have fought and fallen for our country followed by a few words from our key note speaker Bronze Star/Purple Heart recipient Ret.US Army Sgt. Nate Watson. We will then move to recognizing our sponsors and 1st Annual HEROES 1/2 Marathon winners!
