On your mark, get set, let’s fight cancer! Now in its landmark 10th year, the Winship Win the Fight 5K is going virtual! The family-friendly event raises critical funds for innovative cancer research, treatment, and care at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
An elegant evening with cocktails, dinner, and dancing, the 5th annual Winship Gala benefits critical cancer research at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. The theme of this year’s black-tie gala is Imagination in celebration of the imagination used by the physicians and researchers every day as they discover new treatments for the devastating disease.
Complimenting this year’s theme, the evening will also be a celebration of the imagination behind the National Cancer Institute’s designation of Winship as a comprehensive cancer center. This now enables Winship to serve as the leader for cancer research, clinical trials, and education in the State of Georgia.
What is the PATH Foundation? The PATH Foundation is a non-profit organization in Atlanta that came out of an idea to develop more public greenway trails in the metro Atlanta and surrounding areas. They work on connecting Atlanta neighborhoods with trails for walkers, runner, cyclists, and skaters.
Why was the PATH Foundation created? The co-founders realized that Atlanta was in need of alternative transportation choices. There was also a desire to have more trails for families to walk and ride bikes together. PATH understands that trails require less maintenance and, therefore, are more cost effective than other recreational fields, courts, and parks. Trails encourage and promote a healthier lifestyle and the connectivity that they offer helps spur economic development, as well.
When was the PATH Foundation started? The organization was started back in 1991 by three guys who had enjoyed off-road trails in other cities and wanted to bring that passion for cycling and the outdoors to Atlanta. Their first goal was to develop a system and create more trails in time for the 1996 Olympics.
Dr. Narayan and his family were looking for a home close to Emory. A friend recommended Becky Morris to guide their search. They look at condos and townhomes in the Downtown Decatur area before finding the perfect one!
Here’s what Dr. Narayan had to say, “Becky Morris was extremely organized, on-task and punctual throughout the entire experience. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted in a home, and Becky tailored each visit to meet all of our demands. She was pleasant to work with and professional. We would recommend her to all home buyers looking for an efficient and reliable realtor.”
