Registration for the first-ever ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation 5K is now open!

Grab your walking and/or running shoes and join your fellow county officials and runners from the Savannah/Chatham County community as they run to support Georgia's future civic leaders. Hosted in conjunction with the 2018 ACCG Annual Conference, the L.A.C.E 5K will benefit the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation programs and initiatives such as GCAPS and the Georgia County Internship Program. 

L.A.C.E. stands for Leading and Advancing Civic Engagement. One of the primary goals of the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation is to foster civic engagement among today’s youth so that they will become more active in their local communities. The Georgia County Internship Program, which places college students in counties for summer internships in a wide range of disciplines, and the Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students, a high school program that gives students a hands-on perspective of the role of county government, are just two of the ways that the foundation fosters this mission.

Sign up Today!
Invest in Georgia's future county leaders by participating in the L.A.C.E. 5K! Registration is $25 per person before April 13. After April 13, prices increase. If you don’t want to run but are interested in supporting the cause as an individual, you can do so through the race registration. Race details and registration information are available here .

For questions regarding registration, please contact Allonah Thomas with the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation at (404) 522-5022 or
