For Immediate Distribution


Atlanta Mission will take over Downtown Atlanta for its annual 5K Race to End Homelessness presented by Aetna. On February 17, 2018, AT 8:30AM at Pemberton Place, thousands of men, women and children will take to the streets of downtown Atlanta to run a race in the cold for those who sleep in the cold. The city of Atlanta is home to thousands of homeless men, women, and children who face the perilous conditions of winter without a roof over their heads. Each race registration provides a night of shelter for someone who would otherwise be sleeping in the cold.

“Aetna is committed to building a healthier world – one person, one family and one community at a time. That means we’re investing our time and resources in the cities and towns where we work and live,” said Frank Ulibarri, president of Aetna’s operations in Georgia. “It is an honor to partner with Atlanta Mission and serve as the presenting sponsor for the 5K Race to End Homelessness. We’re proud to support their efforts to change the lives of those facing homelessness in our community.”


Atlanta Mission serves over 1,000 of these men, women and children every single day. The downtown men’s shelter alone is a refuge for over 400 men on a daily basis. We hope you will join us this February as donors, volunteers, community members and Atlanta Mission clients run side by side in the race to end homelessness. For more information on the race go to
