One of the primary goals of the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation is to foster civic engagement among today’s youth so that they will become more active in their local communities.  The Georgia County Internship Program, which places college students in counties for summer internships in a wide range of disciplines, and the Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students, a high school program that gives students a hands-on perspective of the role of county government, are just two of the ways that the foundation fosters this mission.

There are numerous opportunities for you to get involved with the L.A.C.E. 5K to benefit the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation:

  • Sign up to participate. Every individual that signs up for the race is also investing in the future of this program.  Registration is $25 per person before April 13. After April 13, prices increase. If you don’t want to run but are interested in supporting the cause as an individual, you can do so through the race registration.  Race details and registration are available here.


  • Consider sponsorship of the race. Many sponsorship opportunities are available to show your support, review the levels and benefits by clicking here. To register as a sponsor click here
