Description

In response to COVID-19 and in the interest of health and safety, we have decided that rather than cancel or postpone the race, the Sheepdog Scamper & Sprint is going VIRTUAL.  We hope that you continue to encourage friends and family to signup,  donate, share, and join us virtually! So, lace up your shoes and get out there on your own or in small groups to do a 5k run or walk between August 30th and September 6th. You will receive an email with a link to submit your results.

Sheepdog Connection was established to honor the life of Ryan FitzGerald - We lovingly called Ryan a “sheepdog” because he had an attitude of service above self, he was intensely loyal,  and he protected, supported and encouraged people around him.

We provide opportunities through our partner organizations for young people to experience the trips that helped to form who Ryan was as a young man and a Sheepdog.  Our partners include:

We are looking for individual runners, families, church groups, running associations, middle/high school track and cross country teams to participate. We also encourage corporations to join us in a community-building event, contribute to their employees' health and support the growth of Sheepdog Connection.

Packet Pickup:

  • Saturday, August 29th, 12-5 PM 
  • North GA Running Co-5456 Bethelview Rd, Suite 102, Cumming, GA 30040
