About This Activity

Welcome to the 3rd annual Running The Ridge Event!  This event helps raise money for the families of Head Start in Mineral Bluff, Georgia.

Through a small group bible study class project we discovered there was a great need to provide financial assistance to many of the children attending Head Start.  In past runs we have helped provide shoes and coats for children in need and this year we are excited to add "A Christmas Blessing" to our program!

The Ridge believes it is OUR responsibility in the name of Christ to help those in need, and it is our privelege to become the hands and feet of Jesus, sharing the love of our Savior with the children in our community!

Event details and schedule

Registration begins at 7:00am at the pavilion in downtown Blue Ridge, GA.
