One of the major events in Stone Mountain this fall is the Granite Grasshopper 5K, taking place on October 13, 2012. This event includes a 5K run as well as a Wellness walk.

Come support the community at this local event.

The 5K is a fundraiser for two of our local schools, Stone Mountain Elementary and Champion Theme Middle School. Last year they raised $1,450 for each school and with your help this year they hope to raise even more.

The Wellness Walk will start at 8:00 am and will include a fun walk around the the village. The 5K run will get underway at 8:30 am.

This event is open to all ages and athletes of all abilities. They welcome everyone to join in and to fundraise for the event. Both the walk and race will begin and end at 922 Main Street in Stone Mountain.

Applications for registration are available online.
