VeloCity Atlanta: Ride/Run/Walk to Support Grady Hospital!

Grady Health Foundation’s fourth annual VeloCity fundraiser will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2021, at the beautiful Bouckaert Farm in Chattahoochee Hills. With its vast 8,000 acres, our new location will allow us to implement any necessary COVID-19 precautions so that our participants may ride or run safely. VeloCity 2021 features a variety of distance options, including 100-mile, 62- mile, 50-mile, 25-mile, and 10-mile rides along metro Atlanta’s best bike routes and run/walk options, including the Grady Superhero 5K and a 9-mile trail run on the 8,000-acre Bouckaert Farm. Participants of all ages and abilities who register for this movement are invited to stay for lunch and an all-day, family-friendly celebration after crossing the finish line.

Registration starts at $30, depending on the course. Participants who cannot join the event on May 1 have an option to register as a Virtual Rider. VeloCity 2021 supports the overall mission of the Grady Health System. Participants can organize teams or raise funds as an individual. No matter how you move or what distance you choose, your registration fee and the funds you raise will directly support Grady’s mission.

Webinar: Connecting Trails, Connecting Communities

ARC Trails Webinar

This webinar will explore some of the key community projects that would turn Atlanta’s existing patchwork of trails into a truly transformative, cohesive network. It will address:

• The disconnected nature of the region’s trail network, which limits the ability of trails to serve as a means of daily transportation
• The lack of access to trails in some parts of metro Atlanta, despite robust investment across the region in recent years.
• The key projects needed to connect existing trails and build out the regional trail network
