Run for Mercy 5K

As Atlanta’s first hospital sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital has a wonderful heritage of providing compassionate, clinically excellent health care. Through primary care, pediatrics, dental, vision, health education, behavioral health, and HIV integrated treatments, Mercy Care gives dignity and an identity to its clients.

ESJH sponsors the Run for Mercy 5K each year and all proceeds from the event support the Mercy Care team and their work to provide health services to the poor and marginalized. The 2017 run date has not yet been set, but we will have more details to come.
