Join us for “Run for Hope”, presented by Highlands, in honor of S.P. Richards Company President and CEO, Rick Toppin. Our combined efforts will raise funds for City of Hope - the comprehensive research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other serious illnesses. “Run for Hope” will be held at Georgia International Horse Park, a former Olympic venue, April 13 - 14, 2018.  

“Run for Hope” is a 123-mile race where each member of an eight-person team will run 3 five-mile segments (15 miles total per team member).  The 24-hour race includes camping and running through rugged terrain, pine forests, flowing streams, and wildlife.  Alongside Highlands, FireKing, Georgia Pacific, GMi Companies, ideal, ShurTech Brands, Static Control, and Zep will be co-sponsoring the event.
