“We’re delighted to put on this event. For over a decade we have provided health and wellness services to educators.” said race organizer Rodney Tew. “The race is the Saturday before school starts in most districts around metro Atlanta. It is a chance for the community to celebrate the return to school and educators in general. It is a chance to appreciate health and being active. We know that when educators are healthier, they perform better and thus education itself is improved. The energy and encouragement from the community will mean a lot going into the new school year. We want people to leave the event with a burning desire to continue moving forward on their health journey”
