About the Event:
B.U.F.F. (Believers United For Fitness) is a faith and fitness company unlocking your potential physically, mentally, and spiritually. The goal of our “Exercise Your Faith 5k Run & Walk” is to bring awareness to the importance of fitness and mental health in the Christian community.
Reasons why we must work so hard:
- Christian are 30% more overweight than any other religion.
- Young adults (18-35) who attend church once a week have a 50% chance of becoming obese.
- Church leaders are 76% more overweight than the congregation.
- Georgia ranks 50 out of 51 in mental health accessibility.

While these numbers seem astronomical, together we can make a difference to change the narrative. At B.U.F.F. we are committed to creating a community to not only acknowledge this issue but to bring tangible change that creates a sustainable lifestyle.
Join us for a day of fun and fitness, starting with the 5K run following a 1K walk. We will have activities for everyone including, live worship + workout, food trucks, swag bags, FREE shirts (first 300 registrants), games and MORE!
All proceeds and fundraising efforts will go toward opening the first ever mental health fitness center. Our revolutionary gym concept will create an environment where you can access professional life coaches, prayer rooms, quality fitness equipment and personal trainers. Wellness isn't one dimensional, it’s three dimensional - Spiritual, Mental, and Physical.
