The 2016 Refuge Run will take place in Atlanta Georgia on Saturday, April 16th at 8:30 a.m. and will host 500 to 1,000 participants who will start at 1300 Joseph E. Boone Blvd, NW in Atlanta, Georgia and run through a historic neighborhood highlighting both blight and restoration on a relatively flat Peachtree Road Race certified course. This “road to transformation” represents the path that our clients travel when they come to City of Refuge. Each kilometer of the race represents a vital program at City of Refuge.
Road To Transformation
