Join the YMCA of Coastal Georgia for the 28th Annual Heart of Savannah 5K. Come for the race and stay for a fun family style YMCA party! This year’s event will feature a 5K Run, 1 Mile Survivors walk and a 1/4 mile kid's run. All of the proceeds from the event will support LIVESTRONG at the Y, a free 12 week program, to help cancer survivors regain their physical and mental strength after treatment through exercise programs specifically for cancer survivors. This year’s event will feature a 1 Mile Survivor’s Walk to celebrate life and hope.
The race will start and finish near the corner of Drayton and Hall Street in Forsyth Park and wind around the park and then down Bull Street through Savannah’s historic squares down to Johnson Square and back up Bull Street to finish in the Park. After the race, a YMCA style party will be held with activities like face painting, healthy activities, yard games and so much more! Bring the family; there will be something for everyone!
