About Miles for Moms 5K
This year, East Georgia Cancer Coalition is hosting its 8th annual Miles for Moms Run ANYWHERE 5K. This race will take place as a virtual 5K, allowing runners from all over to participate from the convenience of their neighborhood. This race will give us the opportunity to increase cancer awareness in an effort to decrease deaths due to cancer. This 5K event will highlight all cancer types, with special recognition to the mothers in our lives that have faced cancer.
All proceeds from this event will contribute to programs and services for residents within our 53 county region in East Georgia. 100% of the EGCC's donations, programs, and services remain in East Georgia.
Register for our 8th annual race today! You must be registered by May 1, 2021, 8:00 AM EST to participate in the virtual 5K. Please click here to register.
To comply with Governor Kemp’s shelter in place guidelines, East Georgia Cancer Coalition has made our annual 5K run/walk a virtual 5K. What this means is that you can compete ANYWHERE: your neighborhood, park, treadmill, etc. provided you can track it with your phone or smartwatch. Your results will be submitted via Active's virtual race platform. A link will be emailed to you following your race registration. Race results will be due the day of the original 5K, May 1, 2021, at noon.
To submit your race results:
A link to the Active result submission page will be emailed to you after you complete your registration . To confirm your race time, we request that you submit a picture or screenshot that shows your time and mileage. This can be a screenshot of a running app, a picture of your treadmill display, or whatever you use to track your distance.
Never used a running app before? We recommend Strava, the #1 distance tracking app among runners. Visit their website at https://www.strava.com/ to learn more.
Because this event is no longer in a specific location, share this with your active family and friends to increase our number of participants! All proceeds will still go to helping cancer patients in our 53 county region.
What about t-shirts and prizes?
Once social distancing recommendations have been lifted, we will be passing out t-shirts from our office for our local participants. If you are a participant from outside Athens, we will mail you your t-shirt.
For local participants, we will be holding a t-shirt pickup at the East Georgia Cancer Coalition office once social distancing recommendations have been lifted. The date of this is TBD. Participants located outside of the Athens areas will be mailed their t-shirts after the t-shirt pickup date.
It is only through the generosity of our funders and donors that we can continue our battle against cancer in east Georgia. 100% of the EGCC’s donations, programs and services remain in east Georgia. Thank you for taking the time to learn about the East Georgia Cancer Coalition. We look forward to hearing from you!
