About This Activity

The East Georgia Cancer Coalition (EGCC) is a cancer-focused regional collaboration anchored by the Augusta and Athens medical communities. The long-term vision for this private, non-profit organization is to utilize the vast resources available to all its members and partners to significantly reduce the morbidity and mortality of cancer to Georgians within our region. One of our principal goals is to educate high-risk populations on cancer awareness, prevention and early detection strategies. Therefore, the EGCC creates programs that seek to inform communities on these issues.


On May 3rd, 2014, the East Georgia Cancer Coalition is hosting its first annual Miles for Moms Run/Walk 5K in downtown Athens, Georgia.  This race will give us the opportunity to increase cancer awareness in an effort to decrease deaths due to cancer.  This 5K event will highlight all cancer types, with special recognition to the mothers in our lives that have faced cancer.  Everyone of all ages is invited!
