Description

The 2nd Annual Stomp Obesity 5k Walk/Run will take place on October 21, 2017 in Historic Atlanta near the Mercedes Benz Stadium. Help us raise awareness about obesity by joining us for our Annual 5k walk/run. Whether you're walking or running for yourself or someone else, you'll help Innovate Create Expose Inc educate others about the importance of weight loss. Join us as we lace up in stride for a healthier lifestyle.

This charity run will help increase the awareness of the Obesity epidemic and encourage all people to get active. Studies show active kids do better!! The course is simply astounding: we've mapped out a course to begin in the Castleberry Hill area and end along MLK Drive in the Central United Methodist parking lot directly across from the Mercedes Benz Stadium.

Have fun and create your team!!

All proceeds benefit Innovate Create Expose, Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, as they continue to inspire young people to become global leaders through Academic Achievement, Mentorship, and Health/Wellness. Every kid deserves a platform for success!

The race will begin promptly at 8:00 AM in Atlanta, GA and travel through the city. The race will utilize the Castleberry Hill area and other parts of historic Atlanta. This course can be used as preparation for marathons.
