About This Activity

The Hapeville Exchange Club has been serving the City of Hapeville and surrounding areas since 1946.  It is one of 660 local Exchange Clubs (20,000 members) across the country whose mission is inspiring communities to be better places to liveChild Abuse Prevention is a major focus of Exchange, and the plight of Homeless K-12 students in schools serving Hapeville area youth is a clear and present example of child abuse.  The Hapeville Exchange Club works with  Fulton County School System social workers to use every penny of the money raised by the 5K Run/Walk to help homeless students have "enough" to function at school. 
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month for Exchange clubs across the country.  Having our 5K Run/Walk as the opening event of the City of Hapeville's Spring Festival on April 9 is an opportunity for the club to raise awareness of Child Abuse Prevention needs while raising money to alleviate one form of Child Abuse - Homelessness! 

The 5K Run/Walk course begins and ends in Hapeville's lovely Master Park and extends through neighborhoods and the city's business left. The course is gently rolling to flat, and the event will be managed by the Hapeville Exchange Club with assistance from the Hapeville Police and Fire departments.
