Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ATLANTA - Jun 08, 2017 - Drawchange hosts its annual 5K run/walk this October 29th, 2017 at beautiful and centrally located Piedmont Park. Start your Halloween weekend with friends and family by getting in some exercise while supporting a great cause. This fundraiser brings the Atlanta community together to support and encourage homeless children through a great arts program. Drawchange gives children an opportunity to express themselves and make a positive impact on their lives.
Since 2009, drawchange has empowered children to dream beyond their circumstances. The 5K event is the biggest fundraiser of the year and therefore enables founder and CEO Jennie Lobato to increase outreach in the Atlanta-area. The5K race director, Marck Dorvil, believes this event is “ready to exponentially grow in size in its fourth year!” Volunteers and sponsors play an integral role in the success of the event. Since its inception in 2014, the 5K has been run by a team of 100%, volunteers. With an overall fundraising goal of $15,000, sponsors and individuals can easily make this 5K the most successful one yet! As a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, drawchange wants to commend Atlanta businesses that support arts’ programs. Past sponsors include Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), Loews Atlanta Hotel, Sun Trust, Blick Art Materials, Millar & Mixon, and popular restaurant chain Chili’s. 77 12th, past Monet-tier sponsor and Atlanta’s leader in luxury high-rise apartment living, returns for the third time this year to support the 5K event.
