Join us for the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta's 4th annual Race for Rest 5K in partnership with Monday Night Brewing! Yes, there will be beer!
Event details and schedule
On-site registration will be available on race day!
Who is the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta?
The Furniture Bank, a 501(c)3, was founded in 1988 in response to the lack of furniture for families moving out of homeless shelters. Today, the Furniture Bank recycles gently-used furniture by collecting it from the community and giving it to individuals and families moving out of homelessness and fleeing domestic violence, as well as countless others struggling to make ends meet. Furniture is essential to a person's physical and emotional well-being. The Furniture bank provides beds for sleeping, tables for sharing meals, and couches for relaxing.
We turn houses into homes.
Where is this happening?
The race begins and ends at Monday Night Brewing's new West End location!
