The GA5K run/walk was created to allow the students, staff, faculty and the surrounding communities to challenge themselves while serving as a contributing member of their community. All proceeds will benefit Sonshine Community Ministries. Sonshine’s mission is to be a place of hope for the hurting by providing clothing, food and counseling services to the homeless and less fortunate of the area.
