run16

This year’s race is SUPERHERO themed, so dress up as your favorite superhero and run for a good cause. (Prizes for top costumes!) This exciting 5K event was started by past Emory PA students and continues to be completely student-run, but we need your help!  Your participation in this event or donation will allow us to give 100% of the event proceeds to three important non-profit organizations in the metro Atlanta area. 

In order to support our program’s mission of providing healthcare to the medically underserved, our class has chosen the following recipients of the fun run proceeds:

  • South Georgia Farmworker Health Project - our collaborative service-learning project bringing together senior PA students, faculty and physicians to provide free healthcare to 1,200-1,600 migrant farmworkers and their families over 12 days of makeshift clinics. Please see http://www.sgfhp.org/ for more information.
  • Good Samaritan Health Center - a local clinic that provides quality medical care to Atlanta’s uninsured and underinsured populations and provides volunteer opportunities for PA and medical students. Please see http://www.goodsamatlanta.org/ for more information.

 

  • HEALing Community Center – provides free healthcare, health education, and training and support program to at-risk and underserved communities in the Atlanta area. Medical services include everything from basic wellness checks and physical examinations to blood tests and access to free medications. For more information, please visit their website at http://www.healingourcommunities.org/
