About This Activity

The first annual Run for Hope 5k takes place in the heart of Five Points, Athens. It starts on Lumpkin St. and loops back to the starting point. The course is relatively flat and great for beginners. The event includes prizes, as well as a motivational speech from the founder of Rescuing Hope, Susan Norris. All proceeds go to help fight sex trafficking, so come on out and run for a great cause!
