October 02, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. The annual Alpha PAL Patrol 5K race takes place Oct. 10 in Alpharetta.

A Peachtree Road Race qualifier, the Police Athletic League (PAL) 5K begins in the parking lot of Jackson Healthcare, 2655 Northwinds Parkway, and takes the runner through rolling hills in the heart of Alpharetta's business district before returning to Jackson Healthcare.

The race starts at 6:45 p.m. Oct. 10. A Zumba dance fitness program will take place at 7 p.m., and the awards are given out at 8 p.m.

For signing up and running, each participant will receive a vintage next level SS shirt along with pasta dinner along with salad. Registration costs $25 if completed by Oct. 4, or $30 on race day. Make entry fee payable and mail to: Alpharetta PAL, P.O. Box 598, Roswell, Ga. 30077.

All proceeds benefit the Alpharetta Police Athletic/Activities League (PAL), a 501c3 nonprofit community-based organization dedicated to providing an environment of "Leaders Building Leaders" for the youth of North Fulton. Their goal is to engage police officers, firefighters and community volunteers to teach and mentor the youth and establish a bond of mutual respect, understanding and trust with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.

"It has been rightly said it doesn't matter where you start out. What really matters is where you're going," said Veronica Carew, executive director of Alpharetta PAL. "Leaders building leaders is what we at Alpharetta PAL stand for. We teach children that you are not a product of your environment. Your environment is a product of you. Our PAL Patrol is just that we are on the watch to make sure your child is not at-risk. That's right they are at-risk to do something that could possibly get him into trouble. We offer guidance and structure, and who better off to do that than a PAL? Come out and support us. Run or Zumba with someone who still knows it takes a village to raise a kid."

Runners can register online at, or in person at the PAL Gym, 86 School Drive, Milton Center in Alpharetta. Cash, check or credit card is accepted at five locations: 3881 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, Ga. 30319, 404-816-8488; 1062 Johnson Ferry, Marietta, Ga. 30068, 770-579-0444; 5530 Windward Parkway, Alpharetta, Ga. 30004, 678-739-4616; 114 East Trinity Place, Decatur, Ga. 30030, 404-377-7370; 1625 Ridenour Boulevard, Kennesaw, Ga. 30152, 678-903-0022.
