October 4, 2021 -- ATLANTA -- Atlanta Track Club announced a
re-imagined Atlanta Track Club Foundation today. The transformed foundation, a
supporting 501(c)(3) nonprofit, will serve as the fundraising and philanthropic
arm for the 57-year-old nonprofit organization, leading the charge on funding
new initiatives and community partnerships that work toward the Club's vision
of a more active and healthy Atlanta.
Kendyl Moss who served as Atlanta Track Club's Director of
Community Relations and Development has been appointed President of the Atlanta
Track Club Foundation. The Foundation will be governed by a Board of Directors,
chaired by Katie Kirkpatrick, President & CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber
as well as other members of the Atlanta running and walking community including
three-time Olympic gold medalist Gail Devers.
"I applaud the innovative thinking and sound strategy the Foundation is pursuing for greater impact in our region," said Kirkpatrick. "Our work will build upon Atlanta Track Club's rich, six-decade history and optimize funding of new initiatives to achieve healthier and more active communities."
"This is about securing and supporting the future of Running City
USA," said Rich Kenah, CEO of Atlanta Track Club. "The Club will continue to
deliver its premium membership, event and high performance programming to
everyone in the runner life cycle and the Foundation's work will allow us to
invest further into organizations and communities we serve today as
well as those we will serve in the future."
"Starting in 2022, the Atlanta Track Club Foundation will commit
to awarding $100,000 in charitable donations to support youth running/walking
programs, school cross country/track & field programs and health and
wellness nonprofit organizations," said Kendyl Moss. Guided by the Club's
three-year strategic plan, the Foundation will intentionally focus on community
collaboration partnerships and future capital projects.
