  • Walk, Run, or Move for The Arc of Southwest Georgia Looking for a different way to support? Join us on our VIRTUAL Walk-a-Thon! We were scheduled for our 3rd Annual Night in the Garden Spring Fundraiser at Pretoria Fields on May 15 - however, due to social distancing rules, we are going VIRTUAL! Participants will walk, run, or bike ride one, two, or 5 miles individually, or with family and friends, at a park, their backyard or even inside. Or "just move" - CrossFit, strength session, or dance-off (TikTok). It’s a great way to exercise and support a great mission for fun with hundreds of others, virtually! Over the 4-day span, all registered participants should track and time their walk, run, or bike ride and enter their times. Top 3 finishers in each category will receive a new Arc of Southwest Georgia T-shirt and medal. OR For every $20 entry fee you will be entered into a DRAW to WIN 1 of 3 amazing prizes! *Thank you to our supporters for the donations. How to participate: • Register by clicking the Tickets button above • On May 19-22, go for a run, walk, ride, or just move • Share on social media using the hashtag #ActiveforTheArc Exercise should be completed safely and in accordance with the CDC's guidelines. While most state's "Stay-at-Home" mandates specifically allow for 1 hour of outdoor exercise per day, it is extremely important that all participants follow the laws of their local authorities. By registering and participating in this event, you agree to follow the laws of your local municipalities and that you fully understand the risks of going outside. The registrant is therefore fully responsible for their health in signing up and participating. Before heading outside, be sure to check your local public health recommendations and the current health mandates in your area, which can be found on your state and local government website.
