The ASSAULT ON KENNESAW MOUNTAIN MEMORIAL 5K Race is conducted annually and is the only organized run at Kennesaw Mountain National Park in Kennesaw, Georgia. Attracting hundreds of runners from across the state each year, the AoKM exemplifies what it means to Never Forget. Participants include senior leadership, military members and civilian runners of all ages, who run and walk to Honor the Georgia National Guard’s Fallen 43 Soldiers lost during the Global War on Terrorism 2001-Present. AoKM’s mission is to support the Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation, the Fallen Soldier Memorial Garden and Wall, build morale and promote physical fitness.
After closing out the 10th Annual AOKM with $8,445.00, the total amount raised for the Georgia National Guard Foundation is $39,425.00! Big thanks to the sponsors, donors, supporters and participants who made the 2021 event a big success for all with a special shout-out of appreciation to the Grace Community Church for their ongoing participation and support!
