The 12th Annual 5K/10K Road Race and 1 Mile Fun Run 2014 Run For Angels, is set for Saturday, February 1, 2014.
The RUN FOR ANGELS is our largest fundraiser and has raised $297,730 since its inception in 2003. With both the 5K and 10K courses being certified as PEACHTREE ROAD RACE QUALIFIERS, the RUN FOR ANGELS is now a highly respected and well-attended event attracting 771 participants from all over the southeast last year! ORION RACING will professionally manage our 2014 race using the latest RFID disposable start and finish chip-timing technology to ensure instant and the most accurate finish times possible! This system will also allow us to prepare for our awards ceremony much more quickly! These precise times will be displayed on a flat screened television at the finish line. Race times will also be emailed to participants in the 5K and 10K races! (Please note that we will use gun time to calculate awards results based on USATF Rule 245.)
We strive to stage a quality athletic event by continuing to improve our race each year. Many committed volunteers are already actively involved in preparing for our 2014 race. We are so grateful for all of the “angels” who support our run by being participants, volunteering time, offering services, or making in-kind or monetary donations! If you are interested in helping with this event, please contact Val Cranford at VPC@numail.org..

The 2014 Angel’s House Chicken-Q
The 2014 Angel’s House Chicken Q will be held at the First United Methodist Church Parish Hall in conjunction with the Run for Angels on Saturday, February 1, 2014.
We had a very successful 2013 Chicken Q, serving over 1,400 plates of the famous Huckleberry’s chicken. Our community continues to show overwhelming support for this important fundraiser. Since 2002, the Chicken Q has raised approximately $73,604 for Angel’s House.
Several local churches (Newnan First United Methodist, Newnan First Baptist, Central Baptist, Newnan First Presbyterian, St. George Catholic, Cornerstone Baptist and St. Paul Episcopal church) have come together to make this event such a wonderful success, and we welcome all of the churches in the community to participate. These friends of Angel’s House sell tickets, bake homemade desserts and work to serve our many hungry patrons on the day of the Chicken Q. If you are interested in buying tickets or volunteering for the Chicken Q, please contact Kelley Welden at email@example.com.
Chicken Q 2014 Tickets will be for sale at First United Methodist Church in Downtown Newnan and United Bank at 31 Bullsboro Drive starting Saturday, January 4, 2014.
On February 1, 2014 the drive-thru Chicken Q pick-up line opens at 10:30am for those who would like “to go” plates. Others are invited to eat in the First United Methodist Church Hall beginning at 11am. Jennifer Palmer and Kelley Welden are the 2014 Chicken Q co-chairs and can be contacted for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
