About This Activity

Come run this year's Blanket of Freedom 5k or 10k on Memorial Day Weekend Saturday May 28th at 7:30 AM at the beautiful Gwinnett Heritage Center and Ivy Creek trails.

The 5k will be run completely on treelined paved trails while the 10 will run 4 miles of paved trails and 2.2 miles of packet dirt along the beautiful Ivy Creek.

Don't miss out on this year's event to support our veterans.

If space is still avaliable we will be allowing day of race sign up for the 5k $40 and 10k - $50 but there is no guarantee of shirt avaliabliity.  Sign up before May 1st to guarantee your t-shirt.

Blanket of Freedom's mission is to provide a cultural alternative to traditional treatment methodologies through the use of Expressive Art/Drama Therapeutic Interventions for combat veterans.  Within a supportive and safe environment, veterans will be able to safely explore their feelings and emotions surrounded by others who have shared experiences.

If you share the vision, I urge you to connect with us and help support these brave men and women! Together, we can make a meaningful difference-- for our families, our communities, and our country.
