About This Activity

This year's Heel to Heal 5k run is a SUPERHERO RUN! Dress up as your favorite superhero and run for a good cause! This could be a comic book or movie character, or even a fireman, policeman, nurse or teacher. Be sure to show your creativity, as prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

Best Individual Costume

Best Team/Family Costume

Best Pet Costume

Best Stroller Theme

Join us after the race for the Post Race Party! After munching on bagels and fruit provided at the finish line, fill up on smoked BBQ and King of Pops popsicles while you wait for your name to be called in the 50/50 raffle or Best Costume awards. There will be facepainting and games for the kids (and the kids at heart).

The 15th annual Heel to Heal 5k run returns to Lullwater Preserve on April 23rd, 2016 in support of the Emory Physician Assistant Program's largest annual philanthropic event. 100% of the proceeds of this race are donated to support the South Georgia Farmworker Project, The Good Samaritan Clinic, and the HEALing Community Center.

Runners (and walkers!) will travel on the gentle pathways of the Lullwater Preserve past the beautiful Candler Lake, a 210 foot suspension bridge, and acres of green space and old growth forest. Its the perfect opportunity to escape the city and experience the natural surroundings that exist in this 154 acre preserve.

Online registration ends on 4/20/16 at 11:59PM. Race day registrations are limited. Register early to guarantee your shirt size.
