About This Activity

Raising Obesity Awareness. Changing Lives.
More than 93 million Americans are affected by the disease of obesity. Here in Georgia, our obesity rate is 17th in the country. More than 65% of our residents battle this disease.
The Center for Surgical Weight Management at Gwinnett Medical Center–Duluth is doing everything we can to bring attention to this lethal disease.
Now, we need your help.
Help us raise awareness about obesity by joining us for our FIRST 5K walk/run. Whether you’re walking or running for yourself or someone else, you’ll help Gwinnett Medical Center educate others about the importance of weight loss.
All proceeds from this fun 5K will go to the Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation to help in our fight against obesity.

Beginner Run/Walk'ers

This event is to help introduce 5K's to beginner's and we'll have a special "Beginner" award category and prizes. A Beginner is anyone has run 0, 1 or 2 5K's. When you register you wil be asked about your status and if you choose "yes" as a beginner than we'll enter you into this division!
