For 17 years, Lake Rabun families and friends have kicked off the 4th of July holiday weekend with the running of the Rabun Ramble. While this is a healthy, fun, community event, it also serves a meaningful purpose. Net proceeds from the event go to support the work of the Lake Rabun Foundation along with donations made to Rabun County Search and Rescue and the Lakemont Wiley Volunteer Fire Department.
Since its inception in 1987, the Foundation has provided almost $1.5 million in scholarship assistance to more than 220 Rabun County students. This year, 50+ Rabun students are attending colleges, technical schools and graduate programs with financial aid from the Lake Rabun Foundation. In addition, the Foundation seeks to improve lives in Rabun County with grants to organizations involved with education, child and family welfare, food ministries, environmental programs, and community development.
You can help maintain this tradition by joining us on race day or becoming a sponsor. Net proceeds from the Rabun Ramble typically generate over $20,000 per year for the Foundation. The sustained success of the race will make it possible to help even more deserving Rabun County students and charitable organizations.
