The Race to the Safe Zone 5K will be held on April 20, 2013 through the beautiful community of Avondale Estates. This event is a 5K race as well as a 1 mile Fun Run benefitting Georgia Safe Schools Coalition.
Georgia Safe Schools Coalition (GSSC) is a partnership of educators, community organizations, and safe school activists dedicated to raising awareness about issues affecting Georgia students. GSSC works with educators and community organizations to help Georgia’s schools become safe and affirming environments for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/ expression.
The purpose of the Georgia Safe Schools Coalition is to eliminate bullying in Georgia schools. By serving as a resource for Georgia students, educators, and families, we strive to stimulate positive social growth among Georgia’s youth, and to foster a safe and affirming school climate for all. Through this race, we hope to promote anti-bullying in Georgia schools, and provide a forum for students to speak out as well as offer information booth about anti-bullying.
Our race is open to anyone who is looking for a challenge, and would like to contribute to a great cause. Through your support of this organization, we can create a safe learning environment for all Georgia students.
