The final Ella’s Run will be held by Right to Hike at 9 AM on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center. Bring your dogs!
The non-profit group Right to Hike (RTH) was formed after Meredith Hope Emerson — a vibrant and deeply loved young lady — lost her life in 2008. In Meredith’s honor, Right to Hike has held an annual 5k called “Ella’s Run.” (Ella was Meredith’s dog, who provided key clues to solving the mystery of Meredith’s death and put a serial murderer behind bars.)
For 10 years, my beloved friends at RTH have organized banquets, fun runs and Ella’s Run. No, it’s not morbid; it’s a celebration of Meredith’s life and yours. Proceeds from the events are used to purchase emergency phones placed on local trails to defend and protect our right to hike.
The final Ella’s Run will be held at 9 AM on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center.
