Tip Top Sponsors Marietta Gobble Jog

Marietta, GA – As an active corporate citizen in Marietta, Tip Top Poultry has partnered with local ministries and non-profits for over 50 years to serve the local community. This year, Tip Top will be a Mayflower level sponsor for the Gobble Jog, a Thanksgiving Day race featuring 10k, 5k, and 1k run/walk events on and around the historic Marietta square. An anticipated 7,000 runners will gather to compete and support the local MUST Ministries’ largest family event.

The 2009 Gobble Jog event hosted 6,500 participants from all 50 States and generated over $230,000 to help combat poverty and homelessness in Cobb County, Cherokee County, and the surrounding area. This event is expected to raise over $260,000 for MUST Ministries providing food, shelter, clothing and services for individuals and families needing assistance or in crisis.

In the last four months, MUST has served 17,854 meals provided 6,668 bed nights of rest and gave 4,641 pounds of food, with 49% of those served being children. Tip Top’s commitment will help MUST better plan for the services and program enhancements needed for the community.
