Georgia Ports is a proud sponsor of the Make-A-Wish Georgia’s 2020 Run for Wishes. Due to COVID-19, this year's event, which will include GPA participants, will take place virtually on April 29-May 3 rather than at a specific site.
 
Choose your favorite outdoor course in the area to walk or run, or use a treadmill.  Before, during, and after the race, show your support of wishes by posting your photos to social media and tag #RunForWishesSavannah.  Click here to sign up.
 
The decision by Make-A-Wish Georgia to go virtual rather than postpone the event was made because, while races may be postponed, hope for critically ill children cannot. In fact, during COVID-19, the morale boost to all of us in giving/receiving wishes becomes more important than ever.  
 
Make-A-Wish’s move to a virtual race is a great example of retooling and flexibility in this uncertain time. The mission of Make-A-Wish Georgia aligns with one of GPA's core values — caring for our neighbors and community.
Georgia Ports is honored to join with the Savannah Morning News as the presenting partner for the annual All Star Preps: Best of the Coastal Empire. The partnership recognizes the top varsity athletes and coaches from area high schools.

The virtual show will feature more than 20 professional athletes as hosts and award announcers, and provide the community with an on-demand broadcast to maintain the annual tradition of honoring hundreds of student-athletes and coaches from Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties for their hard work and dedication in their sport during the past school year.

The event will be available to watch at 6 p.m. June 18 on any smart device through YouTube and the event website thanks to the continued support of partners like Georgia Ports.

In addition, there will be a national tribute video for spring seniors across the country. There will also be a special tribute to area seniors who missed their spring season in the keepsake edition, published on June 21 in the Savannah Morning News.

Even as they deal with a maze of restrictions, new safety protocols and uncertainty about their own operations, manufacturers across Georgia, many of them with foreign parent companies, have found ways to step up and fight the COVID-19 pandemic within the state and beyond.
