BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
The 2016 DeKalb Breast Cancer Awareness 5K Walk/Run provides an opportunity for those in our county whose lives have been impacted by cancer, are passionate about it, and cannot afford to participate in larger, national efforts to be empowered to have their own personal stance.
The walk route will begin and end at Northlake Mall in Tucker, GA.
Dear Run/Walk Participants,
Welcome to our first 2016 DeKalb Breast Cancer Awareness 5K Run/Walk!
As you know, the run/walk will be held at Northlake Mall in Tucker, Georgia on Saturday - October 22, 2016. The race will start promptly at 9am and runners/walkers are advised to be in position at that time.
Registration and t-shirt pick-up will start at 7am and will be located at the main entrance of the mall. We have over 200 runners registered, so in the interest of time and congestion, please work with us to move everyone through the lines expeditiously.
Our warm-up will start at 8:30am with fitness extraordinaire Eric Nicoleau of @resultsbyenics, Falcons Cheerleaders and Cedar Grove High school Marching Band.
The 5K run is entirely within the Northlake Mall boundaries, and roads will be manned by our public safety department to ensure traffic safety. Volunteers will be deployed to keep runners on course and one of our EMT units will be available to respond to any emergencies. The DeKalb County 5K team has taken every step to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
Each runner/walker is required to read and sign a waiver prior to reciveing their t-shirt and race number that absolves The DeKalb County 5K Run/Walk organizers, the race coordinator, and DeKalb County of any fault arising from injury to participants.
Thanks! so much for your support and participation, and we will see you on Saturday!
The 2016 DeKalb County Breast Cancer Awareness 5K Run/Walk Planning Committee
