On Saturday, May 21, two generations will come together to host the annual geneRACEtion 10K Run and 2K Fun Run in Grant Park. We will raise money while running or walking through one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods. More than 1,000 runners are expected to participate. Proceeds raised from geneRACEtion will benefit two worthy organizations:
“Although SCS and Kate’s Club are focused on meeting basic living needs for our clients, the geneRACEtion 10K and 2K Fun Run will bring together people from all over the metro area to have fun and to celebrate life in a healthy and invigorating way,” said Jeffrey Smythe, Executive Director of Senior Citizen Services of Metropolitan Atlanta, Inc. (SCS). “Through participation in the geneRACEtion 10K and 2K Fun Run, metro Atlantans can remember what it is like to be a child, and sometimes how difficult that is, and at the same time, we’re all looking forward to growing older in an independent and dignified way.”
Emily Brenner Hawkins, Executive Director of Kate’s Club said, “The Kate’s Club children are so excited run in memory of their loved ones and to join our friends at SCS in this wonderful celebration of life and community.”
