The Peachtree City Running Club, along with American Legion Post 50, will co-host the ninth annual All American Run/Walk 5K/10K race Saturday, May 26. This year’s race will have a high-tech shirt that will be limited to the first 500 entrants.
The American Legion is the oldest veteran’s group in the United States, chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veteran’s service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. This year marks the beginning of the centennial celebration of its founding.
Peachtree City boasts one of the largest and most active posts within Georgia, with more than 350 members. Virtually 100 percent of the funds collected by the post are used to support veteran and youth programs throughout the year.
Race organizers are seeking runners, joggers, and walkers for the All American 5K/10K. All proceeds will be used to support community activities.
