Chick-fil-A Charity 5k

The inaugural Chick-fil-A 5K race is set for April 10, 2010 with proceeds going to the Jessica Elkins Meningitis Awareness Foundation. Starting on Washington Street near downtown Athens, the race will begin at 8:00 a.m. and follow a course which accomodates both runners and walkers.

The Jessica Elkins Meningitis Foundation was founded in memory of Jessica who died December 26, 2007 after a five-day battle with meningitis. Her parents work to educate the community about meningitis and are advocates of menactra, a vaccine against meningitis that is available.

The fee is $25 and the course runs on the old Summer Sun course in Athens, certified course AL02010JD.
