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.
Here is how it works...
Step 1. Register to run/walk the virtual 5K and invite your friends to join!
Step 2. We will offer in person pick up at North GA Running Co (5456 Bethelview Rd, Suite 102, Cumming, GA 30040) on August 29th from 12-6pm. If you aren't able to make it we will mail your race swag to your door via USPS the following week! Shipping is included and you will receive email with tracking # as soon as your items are shipped!
Step 3. Run/walk the distance on your own, using our RaceJoy app or one of your other favorites to track your time and distance!
