This is the 12th Annual Haven House 5k. We are back at again in 2024 at Strong Rock Christian School in Locust Grove, GA. The 5k course is a fast one. We start just outside the track, make a loop around the parking lots and down the road to Bill Gardner Parkway. You turn around there and head back to finish on the track. The course is not open to traffic. We will have yard flamingos lining the course again this year. Just like last year, if you want to sport your Hawaiian shirt or party shirt, we welcome fun attire! Every finisher will receive a lei.
Do you or your company want to sponsor our race? There are multiple levels of sponsorship. Your donation will go directly to help clients of Haven House!
Haven House is a domestic violence service provider and emergency shelter dedicated to ending the cycle of family violence in Henry, Jasper, Butts, and Lamar Counties.
No one should be assaulted by a partner or spouse. No child should lay awake at night trembling in fear because his/her home is not a safe place. We are fortunate to live in a community where men and women recognize domestic violence is everyone's problem, and we are proud to fulfill our mission of working together to eliminate abuse and fear. By providing safety, shelter, counseling, and advocacy, we empower each survivor to create a future that is free from violence. If you or someone you know is experiencing family violence, please get help now! Our 24-hour crisis line is (770) 954-9229.
Got old sneakers you think have no more use??? Bring them to us on race day!! We'll be collecting them as donations to help Haven House! We'll have a collection box available at the race.
