Join us for The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta's 6th annual Race for Rest 5K in partnership with Monday Night Brewing! Yes, there will be beer!
The Furniture Bank, a 501(c)3, was founded in 1988 in response to the lack of furniture for families moving out of homeless shelters. Today, the Furniture Bank recycles gently-used furniture by collecting it from the community and giving it to individuals and families moving out of homelessness and fleeing domestic violence, as well as countless others struggling to make ends meet. Furniture is essential to a person's physical and emotional well-being. The Furniture bank provides beds for sleeping, tables for sharing meals, and couches for relaxing.
We turn houses into homes.
WHY SHOULD YOU RUN IN THE RACE FOR REST 5K?
1. If you register by October 19, you are guaranteed a super cool free t-shirt.
2. Every race participant (21 and over, of course) will receive a FREE beer, mini bloody mary from ASW Distillery, and coffee from Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters!
3. Our 5k is a chipped Peachtree qualifier that runs along the beltline.
4. We'll have live music from Sweet Auburn String Band at the official 5k after-party inside the Garage.
5. Because everyone deserves a place to lay their head.
