22nd Annual MUST Gobble Jog

Thu November 28, 2024 Marietta, GA 30060 US Directions


#1 fundraising event of the year!

MUST Ministries' Gobble Jog holds a special place as a Thanksgiving tradition that brings together friends and families for a meaningful run/walk event. Beyond its festive nature, your participation and support play a crucial role in addressing urgent food insecurity challenges faced by MUST Ministries.
Runners and walkers choose between a 10K, 5K, 1K, Tot Trot (100 yards), or phantom runner and run with us on November 23rd. 
Once registered, runners can also help raise money by letting family, friends, and co-workers know the following three ways they can donate:
    1. Running in honor or memory of a loved one
    2. Donate a dollar to match each date of November (totaling $351)
    3. #GobbleJog - 27 Days of Thanks - post what you are thankful for on social media each day and raise money in thankfulness
*All proceeds will go to provide food for the local community.
