Help Us Make Free Fitness Even Better!

Sarah Appleton, a Georgia State University graduate assistant with the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, is looking for adult volunteers to participate in a research study about physical activity. The study hopes to understand how the current pandemic has influenced your daily fitness habits and what role the Atlanta BeltLine plays in helping you stay fit and healthy. We hope to find volunteers who are currently active or have previously been active on the Beltline and who have possibly participated in one or more of our free fitness classes.

Research volunteers will be asked to complete one online survey that should take no more than 10 minutes. The survey will not expose you to any risk beyond what you may experience during a typical day.

Please click on this link to access the consent form and survey. The survey is best viewed on a desktop or laptop but can also be completed on a mobile device.

Amazon Gift Card Raffle

Anyone who clicks on the survey link and responds to the consent form, even if you say no, will have the option to enter a raffle to win an Amazon gift card! We are raffling two $50 gift cards and four $25 gift cards. You do not have to participate or answer any questions to enter the raffle. Everyone entered will have the same chance to win one gift card. You will only need to provide your name and email address so we can randomly select raffle winners and deliver the gift card electronically. Only U.S. residents who are 18 years and older are eligible for the raffle.

The date and time of the raffle and who will be conducting the raffle will be announced on the Atlanta BeltLine website and associated social media sites. We anticipate it will take place before the Thanksgiving holiday. Once winners are randomly selected and contacted by email, they will be announced on the same websites. The study PI will oversee the raffle and destroy related materials once the raffle is complete. No one associated with the research study or related to study personnel are eligible to participate in the raffle.

If you have any questions about the research, please contact Sarah Appleton at or Dr. Rebeccah Ellis at or 404-413-8370.

Gift Card Winner Selection Process (Posted Oct. 20, 2020)

Gift card winners will be drawn on Monday, November 30 at 12:00 p.m. by ABP’s Jen Treman. Jen was not associated with the survey, and she will randomly select names for the two $50 gift cards and names for the four $25 gift cards. Once winners are randomly selected and contacted by email, they will be announced publicly on all our communication channels.

Gift Card Winners Named (Posted December 4, 2020)

Here are the names of the gift card winners:

  • $50 gift card winners: David Molony, John Bartkus
  • $25 gift card winners: Melissa Vasquez, Taylor Thompson, Safina Jamal, May Hale

Thank you for taking part in this research. Without research volunteers, we would be unable to continue to expand and improve the Atlanta Beltline.
