The 2015 MLK Day 5K Run/Walk is attracting a diverse crowd of men, women and children in and around Atlanta in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream of the “beloved community.”

The purpose of the race is special: to foster fellowship and fitness in celebration of the Beloved Community that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned.

In support of this, we are working with Atlanta area schools, churches, community organizations and businesses to use the race as a fundraiser for their community-oriented initiatives. Five dollars of each registration from an approved organization will be returned to that organization for use in community efforts of its choice. In other words, if 100 people register under Team X, we will send a check for $500 to Team X’s organization.

Additionally, we are promoting the benefit and love of fitness.  Atlanta is one of the most active running communities in the U.S, home to the 2nd largest track club in America and the largest 10k in the world.  There is a running event for every holiday and season of the year.  One national holiday with no race was Martin Luther King Day.  With most Americans having the day off of work and school, this is a perfect opportunity to bring the community together for a road race and celebration. With it being the 2oth day of 2014, it is great jump start to the New Year.

We are encouraging people to begin a 20-day exercise streak on January 1st.  We plan to post fitness tips on the website and include them in the race packet.  It is our experience that if you make working out a habit and part of your daily routine, it becomes a lifestyle.  We are encouraging participants to establish a pattern of exercise so they can have a news year’s resolution that sticks.

With the excitement from the local schools and churches, we are anticipating 4,000 participants to join us on January 20, 2014 for the MLKDay5K.

Thank you for your consideration of sponsorship.
