One of the cornerstone principles of The Swag Race Run for the Culture is promoting and supporting Black-owned businesses and the people behind them. Since its inception, we proudly support African-American entrepreneurs at every Swag Race during the outdoor vendor marketplace at Atlanta's historic Freedom Park.
Not only has this been a great way to promote and network with Black business owners in our community, a portion of the proceeds has supported three grantees with $3,000 donated to date.
