Nov. 18—MUST Ministries is expecting 10,000 runners this Thanksgiving Day as the nonprofit celebrates 20 years of racing against poverty with the MDJ Gobble Jog.
Since 2002, families from all over the world have come together on Marietta Square to run in the Marietta Daily Journal MUST Ministries Gobble Jog, one of the largest Thanksgiving Day races in the Southeast. The annual event raises funds for those in need who come to MUST for housing, food, job assistance, clothing and more.
This year, MUST will help more than 60,000 people across eight metro Atlanta counties find a second chance at hope. Runners and walkers choose between a 10K, 5K, 1K, Tot Trot (50 yards) or being a phantom runner.
