Over the past 9 years the 2-Day Walk has funded 169 grants totalling $8 million to support breast health programs throughout Georgia.
It’s The Journey, Inc.’s mission is to strengthen Georgia’s breast cancer community by raising money and awareness for local organizations that focus on breast cancer education, early detection, awareness and support services, as well as the unmet needs in the breast cancer community.The fight against breast cancer is not a single battle. It’s an ongoing struggle that is faced with courage and determination. It is, in fact, a journey.
It’s The Journey, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2002 that raises funds and awareness for Georgia breast cancer organizations offering support to many women and men across the state.

In support of the HAVE Foundation Rotary Club Atlanta and member Kurt Ronn visit Honduras. Computers, Internet and wireless routers were installed in a small village school in the middle of the Honduran jungle six hours from the capital. Technology is an enabler. Imagine the possibilities for the school and the village.
The people of Honduras’ remote Agalta Valley face lives of poverty with few opportunities for education or advancement. Despite these obstacles, the region’s children are eager for the chance to learn – and the Honduras Agalta Valley Education (HAVE) Foundation was formed to give them that chance. As a secular 501c3 non-profit our sole responsibility is to help fund education efforts for the people of the Agalta Valley and to help their communities rise out of poverty – but we need your help.
Donate to HAVE today. Together we can help the people of the Agalta Valley improve their lives through education, one student at a time.

HRworks participates in the 65Roses Publix Georgia Marathon to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited, chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 800 children and adults in Georgia, 30,000 individuals in the United States, and 70,000 people worldwide.
Since 1965, the term "65 Roses" has been used by children of all ages to describe their disease. But, making it easier to say does not make CF any easier to live with. The "65 Roses" story [http://www.cff.org/aboutCFFoundation/About65Roses/] has captured the hearts and emotions of all who have heard it. The rose, appropriately the ancient symbol of love, has become a symbol of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Proceeds contributed by 65ROSES team members, volunteers and supporters will be distributed in equal measure to two charitable organizations vital to the cystic fibrosis community: The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation [http://www.cff.org/] and the Cystic Fibrosis – Reaching Out Foundation [http://www.reachingoutfoundation.org/]
