ATLANTA, GEORGIA, September 8, 2014. On Sunday, September 14, 2014, around 6,000 participants will race to end global poverty in the annual Atlanta Partnership Walk/Run at Centennial Olympic Park. The Atlanta Partnership Walk/Run is an initiative of Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. (AKF USA) to raise awareness and funds that reduce poverty, hunger, illiteracy and poor health in Africa and Asia.
Last year’s event raised over $1.1 million for AKF USA programs worldwide. 100% of the funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to projects supported by the Foundation; not a cent is spent on administration.
The event is a day of fun for the whole family and one that Atlantans look forward to every year. It features a 5K Run (ages 13 and up), 1K Run (ages 7 – 12), 100-Yard Dash (ages 6 and under), and Walk (all ages).
PartnershipsInAction is an initiative of Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. and its network of volunteers across the U.S. to raise awareness and funds for innovative programs that create hope and opportunity for disadvantaged communities in the developing world. –http://www.partnershipsinaction.org, Twitter, Facebook
