Fulton County Commissioner of District 4, Natalie Hall, and the Fulton County Board of Commissioners will honor the legacy of the late Commissioner Joan P. Garner by hosting the 6th Annual Joan P. Garner Walk and Health Fair on Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., at Grant Park located at 250 Georgia Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312. 

This annual community event allows Fulton County residents and guests to enjoy a fun-filled day while emphasizing the importance of health and wellness. This FREE event features a concert, performers, food vendors, games for children, prizes and giveaways, community-based resources, dance and fitness interactive activities, vaccinations, health screenings, and other activities.

The day’s events pay homage to the late Fulton County Commissioner of District 4 Joan P. Garner, who spent decades advocating for civil and human rights and health issues. She served as the Executive Director of the Historic District Development Corporation, a nonprofit founded by Coretta Scott King to revitalize the Old 4th Ward and Martin Luther King Historic District. During her tenure as commissioner, Joan P. Garner worked tirelessly to fight against health inequity, fought for assistance with the HIV crisis in the region, and became the Executive Sponsor of Fulton County Government’s “All People Are Healthy” strategic priority area. Commissioner Garner lost her battle with breast cancer in 2017. This will be a day that will celebrate her life, legacy, and light.
