October Race for Good Event Benefits Open Hand — We Need Your Support!

Our Race for Good October event will help raise much-needed funds in support of Open Hand clients affected by HIV/AIDS.

The next Good Measure Meals Race for Good event is the AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run on Sunday, October 20, 2013.

The run takes place at 1 p.m. and the walk starts at 2 p.m. The race and the walk follow the same route, starting and finishing at Piedmont Park. You can choose to run the 5K, walk the 5K, or do both! (Last year, team members did the 5K walk right after the 5K run with our Open Hand team!).

This event is a fundraiser, so all runners and walkers are encouraged to ask their friends and family to support them by donating to the event to support AID Atlanta and seven other participating agencies — including our parent non-profit organization, Open Hand Atlanta.

Last year, the event raised over $940,000 and this year their goal is to raise over $1,000,000. Our specific team goal is to raise $5,000, and we would love your help in meeting our goal! But while we would love you to participate in this event to help raise money, the AIDS Walk and Fun Run is also just a really fun run/walk in which to participate. We’re looking forward to having a great time!

The registration fee for the 5K run is $30, until October 19. Race day registration is available for $40. All runners will receive an official t-shirt The registration fee for the 5K walk is $10. Please keep in mind t-shirts, hats, and other incentives are awarded based on your donations received.
