City of Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Rap superstar and entrepreneur Jeezy joined 60,000 runners and walkers for the largest 10K in the world, the 49th annual AJC Peachtree Road Race. Jeezy ran with Mayor Bottoms to raise money for youth via his Street Dreamz Foundation, the Mayor’s Youth Scholarship Program and Atlanta Track Club’s Kilometer Kids program. This was Jeezy’s first 10K race. Running, which is a stress reliever for Jeezy, finished the race in an hour. Afterwards, he took pictures with fans who cheered the rapper as he crossed the finished line.
Immediately following the race, Mayor Bottoms and Jeezy hosted a “Rehydrate Center” at Bar Amalfi to celebrate the completion of the race. Sponsored by Defiance Fuel, runners enjoyed complimentary food and drink while sharing their experience running the 10K.
A donation will be made later this month to all three charities. For more information about the fundraiser and how to donate, please visit: www.streetdreamzfoundation.com/jeezyrunspeachtree.
