The Atlanta Track Club Foundation, Inc., was founded in the late 1980's with a mission to promote track and field, distance running, and allied events in the State of Georgia. Created with the endorsement of the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Track Club, the ATC Foundation was established through a donation from the Atlanta Track Club and has received generous donations over the years from the organization.
