About This Activity

The Georgia Municipal Association began the Mayor's Motorcade in 1959 at the request of then-Govenor, Ernest Vandiver, as a way of providing holiday gifts for patients of Georgia's mental health hospitals. The program is also aimed at raising the awareness of the needs of Georgia's mental hospitals. 
There are currently five regional mental health hospitals in the state, serving some 3,200 Georgians. Many of these clients have lived in the hospital facility for much of their lives and receive little, if any, support from their families. Without the Mayor's Motorcade, the staff at these hospitals have told us that many of their patients would not receive a gift for the holidays. 
Hinesville's contribution to the Mayor's Motorcade specifically benefits patients at Georgia Regional Hospital. Last year, the City of Hinesville was able to contribute $2,800 to this cause from the Healthy Hinesville 5K proceeds.
