In addition to the race, it’s a night of incredible fun, a little friendly competition and fundraising for local and international charities supported by Alpharetta Rotary. This year’s event will be held in the park behind City Hall. There will be plenty of “green space” to accommodate large company sponsors who might desire a private company picnic feel, while enjoying Alpharetta’s largest and most exciting charitable fundraiser of the year.
2017 marks the 34th anniversary of the Rotary Club of Alpharetta and the 21st annual Mayor’s Corporate Challenge. “Alpharetta Rotarians are excited to be a part of another great year with the Mayor’s Corporate Challenge. We appreciate the sponsors that have stepped up to support this race and it is because of them that we can continue to do good works in the community throughout the year,” said Scott Doll.
Lace up your shoes or come out to cheer in beautiful downtown Alpharetta on August 24th and enjoy a night of running, walking, food, music and fun. This event is a cooperative effort by the City of Alpharetta, The Rotary Club of Alpharetta and LexisNexis Risk Solutions.
Last year’s event raised over $150,000 which were used to support non-profit organizations that make a difference in the lives of homeless children, mothers and families by providing transition housing, life skills training, budgeting and vocational training.
Local charities that benefited directly from the funds raised were North Fulton Community Charities, Drake House, StandUp for Kids, Homestretch, Foster Care of Georgia, Lionheart School, YMCA, Boy Scouts of America, City of Refuge and many others. The funds also had a global impact on Polio Eradication, Literacy, Clean Water Projects and Humanitarian and Medical Aid.
