Get in on the Action: 5K to Benefit Youth Service Fund


With a theme of "Show Your Work: Worship that Inspires Action," there's no better time to get in on the "Action" than the 11th Annual North Georgia Conference 5K Walk/Run in historic downtown Athens! The event will benefit youth mission and service opportunities in the churches of our conference through the Youth Service Fund.

For decades, the Conference Council on Youth Ministries has raised funds to help support unique ideas that place emphasis on ministry with and for young people in local churches and their community. The goal is to encourage innovation and action as it relates to ministry with youth.

The race begins at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14, on Washington Street near the Classic Center and it follows a route through downtown Athens and along the river, ending behind the Classic Center’s Foundry Building.

Classic Race Services, a company with nearly 30 years experience in managing races of various sizes is coordinating this year’s 5K Run.

Please help support youth across the North Georgia Conference by joining us for the run or by making a donation so that this ministry may continue for years to come.
