Shepherd Center's Wheelchair Division of the AJC Peachtree Road Race
Every July 4, Shepherd Center sponsors the Wheelchair Division of the AJC Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. More than 60 world-class athletes from around the globe compete in this annual 10K event.
The Wheelchair Division follows the course set for the Peachtree Road Race foot racers – 6.2 miles down Peachtree Road, starting at Lenox Road and ending on 10th Street at Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta.
Shepherd Center staff members, patients and their families always line the race route along Peachtree Road in front of the hospital to cheer on the wheelchair and foot racers. The event is covered live by WXIA-TV 11 Alive News in Atlanta.
Race results are reported via Shepherd Center's social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and at news.shepherd.org. Results from previous year's races are available at the links below.
