About Atlanta Mission and the Race
On February 18, 2017, a cold Saturday morning in Atlanta, hundreds of men, women and children will take to the streets of downtown Atlanta to run a 5K road race in the bitter cold. The city of Atlanta is home to over 10,000 homeless individuals, people who face the perilous conditions of winter without a roof over their heads.

Atlanta Mission serves over 1,000 of these men, women and children every single day. The downtown men's shelter alone is a refuge for over 400 men on a daily basis. We hope you will join us this February as donors, volunteers, community members and Atlanta Mission clients run side-by-side in a race to end homelessness!

Your registration fee and fundraising supports emergency shelter and life transformation. In the past year, Atlanta Mission:
Served over 800,000 meals
Provided over 300,000 beds nights
Assisted nearly 600 clients in attaining employment
Transformed the lives of over 800 families

To start your registration process, click the online link above. Additionally, we ask you to consider creating a team or fundraising as an individual to further support the homeless in our community through your race participation. We suggest you set a goal for how much you want to raise and share with friends, family, and colleagues. All registration fees and donations go directly to Atlanta Mission. Please check out some of the top donor pages for an idea of how to garner support for the Atlanta Mission 5K.

We look forward to running alongside you in the race to end homelessness!
