Sickle Cell 5k Road Race/Walk

The Sickle Cell 5K Road Race/Walk is a significant attraction for runners and walkers! The race is foremost a charitable event, with proceeds supporting the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia's nonprofit mission and programs. SCFG serves people affected by sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait -- both are genetic blood disorders. The 42nd Race/Walk starts at 9:00 a.m. Participants will run the comfortable 5K (3.1 miles) course through beautiful and historic downtown East Point and the city's historic communities. Participants will receive a finishers medal, a t-shirt, water to stay hydrated, and fruit. All ages and everyone is welcome to participate! The top three men and women who cross the finish line will receive a plaque, the 1st place male and female winners will receive an Apple 11-inch iPad Pro, 2nd place will receive a 55" Television, and the 3rd place male and female finishers will receive $125.00.
