On November 10th, our Executive Director, Vince Smith, set out to run 10 miles through downtown Atlanta as a tribute to our partners and friends who have made the past 10 years at Gateway Center a success. Vince’s run was a great success, and raised awareness for our 10th anniversary celebration, Human Clay, as well as Gateway Center in general.

A big thank you to all of our partners who have made the last 10 years possible!

The Route

Vince’s route sent him zigzagging through downtown to thank all of Gateway’s amazing partners!
