ATLANTA: Jogging club has a mission: Chasing the fear of crime
By Vicki Conwell
Sunday, March 15, 2009
Along the cold, dark streets of the Old Fourth Ward, Grant Park and other intown neighborhoods, three Atlantans jogged in unison past homes, local pubs and small shops.
They trotted by Standard Food & Spirits, where a popular bartender had recently been murdered, and made a donation to the reward fund. They took photos in front of a dilapidated motel along Hilliard Street to document how it had become an incubator for vagrants and illicit activity.
Since December, their weekly Tuesday evening runs have attracted a following, and the original threesome has grown into a throng of 30 or so people, including a bicycle-riding child, a mother pushing a stroller and a few baby boomers. A Facebook page about their free-to-join group has attracted more than 200 supporters.
