Boys Junior Varsity Football, Boys Varsity Football · Riverdale Partners with MADD and Falcons for 5K Against Drunk Driving


Join the Riverdale Raider’s Football team as they Rise Up & Run 5K like MADD with the Atlanta Falcons and win the High School Football Challenge benefiting Mothers Against Drunk Driving!

The football team is pleased to partnership with MADD & the Atlanta Falcons and begin RHS 1st annual Run & Walk like MADD to bring drunk driving awareness to our school, our football team, our family and our community about the dangers of drinking and driving.

On Saturday, September 10, the Atlanta Falcons and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), along with the Atlanta Track Club, will be hosting the Rise Up and Run 5K/Walk Like MADD. All of the proceeds go to Mothers Against Drunk Driving Georgia.

Our goal is to unite as a stronger RAIDER NATION as we bring community awareness to drunk driving. Mrs. Bridget Moore, parents of Senior LB #32 Josh Moore, will serve as the teams parent liaison for the event.

Our goal is to raise a minimum $2,100.00 in memory of Timothy Cannon Jr., Mrs. Moore’s nephew and Josh’s cousin, who was tragically killed at the age of 21 by a 19 year old drunk driver while changing a tire on the side of the highway during his senior year at Savannah State University.

Timothy was a high school football player at Heritage High School who earned a football scholarship to Savannah State University.  By bringing awareness to this great cause, each team member has the opportunity to advance in football, unlike Timothy, as his future was tragically taken away from him due to drunk driving.

This is Our Dedication, Our Passion, Our Team, WE ARE RAIDERS!

RISE UP RAIDERS and lets DO THIS!  DRUNK DRIVING ENDS HERE! #RaiderNation

This family friendly race will feature a course in downtown Atlanta and will finish by running through the player’s tunnel onto the Atlanta Falcons 50-yard line inside the Georgia Dome.

The race will also have photo opportunities with Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders and Freddie Falcon, as well as interactive games, prizes and giveaways! Don’t miss your chance to stand with the Atlanta Falcons as we race one last time at the Georgia Dome, before the Atlanta Falcons move to Mercedes-Benz Stadium next year.
