Run For Shelter

November 7th, there is an opportunity for us to come together and help the homeless by participating in a 5K race or walk at Tribble Mill Park in Lawrenceville. Click run 4 shelter Mail Entry Form.pdf for a mail in a registration flier or you can use this link to register on line. 

For a few hours in the morning, you can get some great exercise and help a worthy cause by helping to house homeless people in our area.  This is also a timed race for those youth that need races for school.  Can you imagine the impact we would make if we had the same crowd show up for the race that we had for the Day of Service?  It doesn’t matter if you win or loose, what matters is the goal.


When: May 7th 2016
Where: Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center
            2020 Clean Water Drive
            Buford, GA

Apalachee will be working with the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center for the third year in a row. The Center is a unique partnership among the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center Foundation, the University of Georgia, the
Gwinnett County Board of Education, and the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners. The Center’s mission is to transform the concepts of science and history into interactive, learn-by-doing experiences that will encourage a visitor’s natural curiosity and sense of wonder about themselves and the world around them.

The event is open to all units, all ages and to all friends and family You have the option to work the entire day or a portion of the day. We just ask that you give at least 2 hours.
