PA Program Annual Heel to Heal 5K

Emory’s first-year PA class sponsors this 5K Run every spring to raise funds for non-profit partners that provide compassionate healthcare to those who otherwise would not have access such as:

  • The South Georgia Farmworker Health Project
  • HEALing Community Center
  • Good Samaritan Health Center

As the name implies, it is a ‘fun run’ with participants dressed up as superheroes (Heros at the Heel) with lots of fun activities. This annual event takes place in April and was started in 2001. It has several corporate sponsors and raises a significant amount of money for its causes.
