Weekend warriors went old school on Saturday, taking part in three-legged races, tug-of-war, pie eating and more during Atlanta Field Day to raise funds for HIV vaccine research.
The event at Emory's Clairmont campus was hosted by Action Cycling Atlanta as its newest signature fundraiser. The organization has raised more than $2.6 million through its annual AIDS Vaccine 200. The AV200, scheduled for May 19-20, is a 200-mile bike ride across Georgia.
Organizers said Atlanta Field Day raised $42,317, which will benefit Action Cycling and Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out for Children. Action Cycling raises funds for the Emory Vaccine Center and HIV non-profits and HERO helps children impacted by HIV.
