The Georgia’s Army National Guard ASSAULT ON KENNESAW MOUNTAIN (AoKM) MEMORIAL 5K RUN is conducted at Kennesaw Mountain State Park, in Kennesaw, Georgia. Attracting hundreds of runners from across the state each year, the AoKM exemplifies what it means to Never Forget. Participants, which include military and civilian runners of all ages, run to honor the Georgia National Guard’s Fallen 43 Soldiers lost during the Global War on Terrorism 2001-Present. AoKM’s mission is to support the Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation, build morale, and promote physical fitness.
Now in its 10thYEAR, over 2200 runners have assaulted the mountain since 2012. To date, the AoKM has generated over $30,000 in support of our Georgia National Guard Soldiers and Airmen.
