ABOUT THE EVENT

On October 10, 2018, the 3rd most powerful storm in American History made landfall in Mexico Beach Florida. The devastation was horrific and spread for 50 miles from Panama City Beach to Port St. Joe.  Today these cities are on the mend yet far from being restored.

Moved by the overwhelming needs created by the storm a group of Atlanta based business leaders came together to form a 3-year strategy aimed at helping create a sense of sustainability among those in a position of caring for the masses. On October 12, 2019, 500 runners will unite out of a common love for running and giving back

The 50-mile run will touch the heart of the storm-affected areas of Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach. 
Join us and help make a difference.
