About This Activity

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is once again gearing up for the much anticipated 9th Annual Big Peach 5K Run/Walk for Blood Cancer set for May 3rd, 2014 at 7:30am and sponsored by Nike and Brookhaven-based retailer, Big Peach Running Co.

Since 2006, this popular neighborhood event has raised over $120,000 towards the fight against blood cancer. An estimated 2,000 people will participate in the event and, as in past years, the finish line area will host a party with food, refreshments and plenty of fun.

Participants have until Wednesday, April 30th at 3 p.m. to register. Teams of five or more participants can sign up together and take advantage of a team member discount. All finishers will receive a Nike technical training T-shirt.

Team In Training will be recruiting corporate teams for the Big Peach 5K Run/Walk for Blood Cancer. Forming a TNT Corporate Team gives employees the experience of working together to achieve a collective goal while directly impacting their personal health and fitness. Corporate Team members will have fundraising and non fundraising options. 

Team In Training is also recruiting moms! Want to get in shape? Meet other local moms? Help fight cancer? Join The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as we kick off our newest program, Moms In Training! Moms In Training is a flexible, 8-week training and fundraising program for Atlanta-area moms to reach their fitness goals while raising money for critical blood cancer research. Our first Moms In Training Team will be participating in the Big Peach 5K event! Bring your friends and babies and come try out the program for FREE starting March 1st.
