The Atlanta Bucks Rugby team's Purple Dress Run today in Midtown

Bucks run for charity

Today at 1 p.m. is the Atlanta Bucks’ Purple Dress Run. The rugby team will wear their best purple dresses and run to and from Atlanta bars in an effort to raise money for YouthPride. The guys will kick off from Mixx and make their way to Blake’s on the Park, F.R.O.G.S. Cantina and then to the Atlanta Eagle (where there will be a post-run cookout).

Tickets are 40 dollars at the door. There will be “redneck games,” as well as prizes for the top finisher, the best dressed, the best mess, the best group and the top fundraisers.
