On February 20, 2016, thousands of men, women and children will take to the streets of downtown Atlanta to run a race in the cold for those who sleep in the cold. The city of Atlanta is home to over 7,000 homeless men, women, and children who face the perilous conditions of winter without a roof over their heads. Each race registration will provide a night of shelter for someone who would otherwise be sleeping in the cold.
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 the race to end homelessness.
Your registration fee and fundraising supports warm shelter and life transformation. In the past year, Atlanta Mission:
- Served over 713,967 meals
- Provided 265,357 bed nights
- Assisted 264 clients in attaining employment
- Transformed the lives of 647 men, women, and children as their homelessness was ended
