About This Activity

The first annual Run Like It Matters 5k/10k Run/Walk at the Northeast Cobb YMCA will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2015.  With your support we can continue our efforts to enhance the YMCA’s Summer Feeding Program. 

The Run Like It Matters 5K/10K will provide participants with a fast USATF certified out and back course that will serve as a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier.  The event will be a run/walk for participants of all ages and activity levels. All participants will receive a long sleeve technical shirt and free photos by True Speed Photo.

About Our Cause

When the final school bells ring and summer break begins, millions of kids are at risk of going hungry. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, around 16.7 million children receive free or reduced-cost meals through the National School Lunch Program, but only 2.3 million of these kids continue to receive meals through the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program.

As part of our commitment to keeping kids healthy, the YMCA of East Cobb through their Summer Feeding Program serves thousands of nutritious meals to the children of our local community throughout the summer months. Your participation in our Run Like it Matters 5K/10K, will directly impact this very important program.
