Dawgs on the Move: Albany Marathon Pre-race Carb Up Dinner


Obesity Initiative at UGA

Dawgs are on the move! Come fuel up with fellow UGA alumni runners the night before the Albany Marathon & Half Marathon at our first Dawgs on the Move: Albany Pre-Race Carb Up Dinner. As you prep for your long run, join us to learn about the Alumni Association’s partnership with the University of Georgia’s Obesity Initiative, which strives to promote a healthy lifestyle by getting alumni moving.

Check out the event details and sign up!

The University of Georgia launched the Obesity Initiative in January 2012 in an effort to tackle Georgia’s multi-faceted obesity problem through treatment, prevention, and research. In order to raise awareness of the Obesity Initiative, the UGA Alumni Association created the Dawgs on the Move program to encourage UGA alumni to participate in physical activities. Whether alumni are inspired to participate in organized races or take part in a family bike ride, Dawgs on the Move celebrates and rewards the effort to be active. While the Obesity Initiative focuses on the state of Georgia, Dawgs on the Move will gather UGA Alumni and friends at walking and running events throughout the country.

Our dinner will feature a healthy carb and protein rich meal of baked spaghetti with ground turkey, vegetarian whole wheat pasta, salad, green beans, and dessert. We look forward to providing you and your friends & family with a delicious meal guaranteed to give you the necessary energy for the miles ahead. Come out to carb up before the Albany Marathon & Half Marathon to learn more about how you can be involved in Dawgs on the Move!
