5K Run Walk FlyerHello HBCU family and supporters,

We are excited to announce our 14th Annual Atlanta HBCU 5K Run/Walk!

Last year was a breakthrough year for our race as we raised more scholarship funds than any year during
the history of this Run/Walk. We could not have done this without your support! Thank you for showing up
and helping support our metro Atlanta students and HBCUs in the midst of all of the challenges we faced as
a nation in 2020. Without question our motto, “Together we win!” came alive as our Atlanta HBCU community
rallied and showed that resilience and giving back is what makes up our proud HBCU legacy. Because of
your support, we were able to provide $125,000 in scholarship funds to metro Atlanta students attending

HBCUs – Thank you!
With much HBCU Pride!

Dan Ford

Once you have completed the race, you can upload your results using almost any tracking app (Strava, Runkeeper, iWatch, Treadmill or any tracking app you use). You can also just post your time.

We are excited the 14th Annual Atlanta HBCU Virtual 5K Run/Walk will continue the tradition of bringing all 63 member HBCU Alumni Chapters together to raise funds to support our students.
