IT'S TIME TO #BANDTOGETHER..... VIRTUALLY!
(Please read entire event description and "Event Details" section for complete instructions)
COVID-19 has us all cooped up, so as we wait for the chance to come together on the weekends, we wanted to bring you a FUN way to experience the social part of running.... virtually!
Run or walk a 5K, submit times, and we will post results (complete instructions below). But it's much more than that. Each registration will help support one of four amazing nonprofits (you will be able to choose which one when you register). You will also be able to win cool door prizes from our local businesses! #shoplocal #suportsmallbusiness
While we "#bandtogether", we thought it would be fun to share our love of music while we do it. When you register, you will be asked what your favorite song is to run to - when we post results, we will share the responses as the ULTIMATE running playlist!
***SMALL BUSINESSES!!!*** Want to be part of the fun? We are in this together! If you are interested in FREE advertising with this event, send an email to email@example.com for all the details. We will ONLY offer this to local businesses in Metro Atlanta.

THE CHARITIES YOU WILL HELP SUPPORT
THE CHILDREN'S HAVEN - The Children's Haven promotes the health and happiness of children impacted by abuse and neglect. The Children's Haven serves children through three programs:
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is central to fulfilling society's most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child's right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect and to learn and grow in the safe embrace of a loving family.
The Wellstar Family Visitation Center offers a safe, comfortable environment for a child to visit with parents, siblings and extended family while they are separated by child welfare involvement.
Prevent Child Abuse Cherokee raises awareness and provides supportive services to parents and community stakeholders to ensure child abuse and neglect never occur.
NEXT STEP MINISTRIES - Next Step Ministries provides a wide range of therapuetic day programs for individuals with special needs. Our clients include not only those with moderate/severe and profound developmental challenges but the often neglected segment of medically fragile individuals. Through our programs and community activities, we strive to reinforce each client's inclusive place in society. (Visit at www.nextstepministries.net)
IT'S THE JOURNEY - It's The Journey, Inc. is a local 501c3 non-profit that raises funds to support breast health and breast cancer programs in communities throughout Georgia. Since 2002, ITJ has raised over $16 million and funded 403 breast health grants to programs that help uninsured and underinsured individuals get access to breast health diagnostics, support services, direct financial support, and more.
ANGELS AMONG US PET RESCUE - Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in north Georgia. We operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the metro Atlanta area. Our efforts are funded by tax-deductible contributions from compassionate people and organizations who care and want to help make a difference… one pet at a time.
HOW TO GET YOUR SWAG!
IN PERSON AT BIG PEACH RUNNING CO. - Big Peach Running Co. is temporarily closed out of respect for concerns related to the pandemic. BUT, we are offering virtual fittings (fun!), curbside pick-up (also fun!), local delivery and online shopping with free shipping. Just call your local store or visit our website for details. And THANK YOU for all the support during this unprecedented time.
We will announce the dates/times that you will be able to pick up your swag in person as soon as they become available, but there will be options to pick up at all 7 locations!
HAVE SWAG MAILED - Choose the "mail me my swag" registration option and have your shirt and medal mailed to your doorstep anywhere in the country. Swag items will be mailed out to all those choosing this option as soon after the race as possible.
A NOTE ABOUT SWAG
As you all know, most non-essential businesses are closed. We are working with our suppliers to get items as fast as possible, and with the gradual re-opening of the economy, we anticipate no issues getting the items. If for any reason there is a lag time in production we will let you know.
We are only ordering shirts based on what was ordered through registration. There will be no extras, and no "size swaps" so we can make sure our charities get the most money possible.
