Strong Legs Run 2013

Each year, the Kids II Strong Legs Run/walk brings runners from all over the state to raise funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. 2013 celebrates the 29th anniversary of the Strong Legs Run!  We invite you to join the Sibley Strong Hearts team to benefit Children's Sibley Heart Center. Team entry fees and any additional funds raised will be designated to cardiac services at Children's Sibley Heart Center. 

The 2013 Kids II Strong Legs Run/walk will be held at Turner Field on Saturday, November 2, 2013. The day will include something for everyone!  The 10K road race, a qualifier for the 2014 Peachtree Road Race, will kick off the day at 8:00 am and the 5K run/walk will begin at 9:15 am. The Mascot Trot begins at 10:00 am, and the 2K Family Fun Run and Stroller Roll will begin at 10:15 am. Other child friendly races will be held throughout the morning at Turner Field. Strollers will be permitted during all races.

Patient families, physicians, staff and friends are invited to join the Sibley Strong Hearts team. We realize that many of you lead very busy lives or are not in the Metro Atlanta area. If you are unable to join us at the Strong Legs event, but would like to donate to our team, follow the directions below and register as a "fundraiser." You can encourage family, friends, and co-workers to make a general team donation online.

Other Details to Note:

  • Our team fundraising goal is $30,000. If we raise $5,000 (not including entry fees) by October 21, the team will be awarded a tented space with pre/post race breakfast and access to indoor restrooms at the event.
  • Our goal is to have at least 50 team members registered by October 7th so we can receive FREE team t-shirts. Team t-shirts will be short sleeve with the team logo on the back.
  • All race participants who pay an entry fee will receive a long sleeve race t-shirt for their participation. 
  • Participants have the opportunity to qualify for valuable gift certificates to any place they would like based on their individual donation totals.
