About the Road to East Lake 5K

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the East Lake Foundation, we are thrilled to partner with the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola to introduce the Road to East Lake 5K. The start and finish lines will be at Charles R. Drew Charter School and the race will weave through the beautiful East Lake community. The route will also allow participants to have the unique opportunity to run through the front 9 holes of the historic East Lake Golf Club, home of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, which will take place Sept. 24-27, 2015.

The TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola is the finale of the PGA TOUR's FedExCup Playoffs. Featuring the top 30 PGA TOUR professionals in the FedExCup standings, the tournament will take place at historic East Lake Golf Club September 23-27, 2015. In 2014, the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola made contributions totaling more than $2.2 million to charities and proudly supports the East Lake Foundation and The First Tee. In total, since 1997 the TOUR Championship has generated more than $24 million to charity, both locally and nationwide.

 About the East Lake Foundation

Founded in 1995 on the belief that everyone deserves a chance to succeed, the East Lake Foundation collaborates with public and private organizations to provide tools that enable Atlanta’s East Lake residents to build a better future through its holistic model for community revitalization.

The East Lake model includes cradle-to-college education at Charles R. Drew Charter School and its early learning partners, mixed-income housing at The Villages of East Lake and community wellness through programs including The First Tee® of East Lake, the Resident and Community Support Program, the East Lake Community Learning Garden, Start ME: East Lake micro-entrepreneur program and East Lake Healthy Connections. This approach to building a strong community not only helps break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, but creates a place where people of all ages and incomes choose to live. East Lake has become a national model for holistic community revitalization programs through its sister organization, Purpose Built Communities. Additional information is available at
