Run for the Son 2019

Thank You for an Awesome 13th Annual Run for the Son!

Thanks to all of our sponsors, runners, staff, board and volunteers, our 13th Annual Run for the Son 5k was a huge success! The race was held on Saturday, May 4th, 2019 at the Gilmer Scout Hut and sent runners on a scenic tour of Downtown Ellijay.

Alex Stolz and Amber David were the overall race winners. The Cup of Legends trophy for the team with the most registered runners went to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and the Cup of Champions trophy for the most active participants went to PDQ Manufacturing.

We are so thankful to all of the Sponsors and Volunteers that made the 2019 Run for the Son possible. Without these generous businesses and individuals, neither the Run for the Son nor our ministry as a whole would be possible!
