This is an UNTIMED charity 5K and 1-mile Fun Run for Michael Warechowski. All ages welcome! On March 27, 2012, Marietta residents Katie and Mike Warechowski found out that their 2-year-old Michael has a degenerative condition called Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD)- a fatal disease that takes away all motor and mental functions. Life expectancy for Michael is about 6-7 years of age. Help us bless this family with resources so they can enjoy every moment they have together. 100% proceeds from this charity 5K will go directly to Michael. Please watch this 11-Alive video about Mikey so you can understand the importance of this race and the impact that your participation will have...

Event details and schedule
PARKING & SHUTTLE
PARKING: Pplease note that official race parking for runners and anyone coming after 9 a.m. will be in the parking lot of Publix at Mountain Park Plaza, 4750 Alabama Rd NE Ste 107, Roswell 30075 (2 miles from race start). The Marietta Historic Trolley shuttle will begin running at 9 a.m., through 12:00 p.m.
This UNTIMED charity race will begin with a 1-mile Fun Run, followed by a 5K. Due to hilly conditions, the 5K course is considered moderate to strenuous. Stroller racers are encouraged to run the 1-mile Fun Run, which eliminates the steepest climbs.
There will be a donation jar at the event for extra donations. If you wish to make a tax-deductible donation directly to Mikey now, you can mail a check (payable to The Golden Soldiers) to Miles for Mikey, 1645 Lake Holcomb Ln. Marietta, GA 30062.
