As we approach our inaugural Uptown Rhodes Race this Saturday, June 6, we are honored to spotlight our Race Chair, Colonel Wayne A. Mock. He is an active and focused advocate for the Trust, and we are grateful for all he has done to make this 5k a success.
Col. Mock, a 30-year Atlanta Police Department veteran and former Atlanta Downtown Improvement District public safety manager, is responsible for the highly successful Midtown Blue Public Safety Force and Midtown Green Environmental Maintenance programs – both of which have been hailed by commercial property owners and residents as an integral part of the renaissance of Midtown.
Colonel Mock is also an avid preservationist and runner, who has traveled to Europe to run competitively, and oversaw security for two consecutive Olympic Marathons, in Atlanta and in Barcelona. He is a true professional and a renaissance man. His dedication to this race has been an inspiration to all of us at the Trust, and we thank him for his diligent commitment to protecting Atlanta's people and her history.
Join the Colonel for a race through historic Ansley Park this Saturday. Bring your kids and your dogs for an unforgettable first annual Uptown Rhodes Race.
