If you ever find yourself tapping the side of your head trying to remember, we've got a fun event for you.
The inaugural Memory Jog 5K is going to be a throw back to the 60'& 70's (remember those...LOL).
It's doubly symbolic because the event proceeds are going to Operation GroundHUG & The Wander Project.
We'll be starting & finishing at the Kids R' Kids in Johns Creek, and we've got Super Soft shirts for the racers, as well as award medals for the Overalls, Masters, Grand Masters, Senior Masters, and all the regular 5 year age groups.
Sooo....it's a memory jog, and we're working hard to make sure we remember all the good times from our youth, so be sure to join in on the fun (if you want:-))
Dig through your closet and grab your groovy clothes that your kids won't let you wear when they're around. You know the ones...those tube socks with the fancy stripes, the bell bottom jeans, the flowery shirt. I could go on, but you've got the idea:)
Entry Fee & Registration

The event is a fundraiser for Operation GroundHUG & the Wander Project, and with that in mind, every participant has the opportunity to raise money through donations and receiving pledges. Any participant who raises $150 or more will have their race entry fees refunded.
You can add the name of a loved one to the back of all the race shirts for just $20, and run "in honor of________"
Proceeds will go to Operation GroundHUG, The Wander Project and Alzheimer's research.
Operation GroundHUG is a local charity that inspires young people to get involved on the 'ground level' to connect with seniors and show them we care. Kids + Seniors = Awesome Memories!
The Wander Project is a project to help families with members diagnosed with Alzheimer's or other dementia that might wander away from home.
