Proceeds from the Milledge Mile


The Athens Road Runners and Milledge Mile are proud to be supporting the following charities with the proceeds from Milledge Mile.


Mercy has been providing free medical, dental, pharmacy, counseling, and health education to the uninsured of Clarke, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, Oglethorpe, and Oconee counties for more than two decades. We are able to carry out our mission to serve nearly 2,000 patients annually with the help of more than 500 volunteers and generous donations to help our neighbors in need.


Project Safe is a 501c3 nonprofit organization working to end domestic violence through crisis intervention, ongoing supportive services, systems change advocacy, and prevention and education. Project Safe’s primary service area is Madison County, Oconee County, Clarke County, and Oglethorpe County, but provides services to people from all over Georgia.


Chess and Community is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering young people in Athens, Georgia and beyond. We believe in the power of chess to inspire critical thinking, problem-solving, and conflict resolution skills in youth. In addition to chess, we also offer robotics, STEM, and debate programs that help young people develop a wide range of skills and interests. Our programs are designed to expose young people to new opportunities and prepare them to be leaders in their communities. We are committed to helping youth reach their full potential and become exceptional in all of their present and future endeavors.

Please consider making a donation to any one of these charities or one donation split evenly between the three.  Donation may be made as you register for the Milledge Mile.
