The Atlanta Georgia Relays is looking for students to volunteer to help with videography, photography, and mass communication. The Atlanta Georgia Relays will be held on May 28 – 29, 2016 at the Langston Hughes High School Stadium. The event will bring together thousands of athletes from across the Caribbean, the South Eastern United States, California and Canada. To date, schools showing commitment hail from Jamaica, the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Cayman Islands, and Puerto Rico just to name a few. There will also be schools and track clubs from Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, and California coming together in the spirit of true sportsmanship, great competition, and camaraderie to showcase their talents in various track and field events.
The event was founded by CEO Keith Muarry, Mr. Maurice Smith (three time Olympian and World Championship Silver Medalist who was also the Captain of Jamaica’s 2008 Beijing Olympics team), and several track and field coaches who currently manage a non-profit organization working with youth athletes. It is also supported and endorsed by Mr. Chris Brown (Olympic Gold, Silver and bronze medalist from Bahamas) and Mr. Dwight Phillips (former World and Olympic Gold Medalist from the United States). The organization provides mentors and an after school program where students are coached by professionals in track and field.
