Arthur M. Blank


Perhaps best known as co-founder of The Home Depot, Arthur M. Blank believes in the importance of making a difference. The 2018 Legacy Award Dinner will honor Arthur M. Blank with the annual Legacy Award, in recognition of his impact on childhood obesity and improving childhood fitness in Georgia and across the nation.

    The Annual Legacy Award Dinner celebrates visionary leaders who heard Dr. Kenneth Cooper’s hypothesis, adapted their lives to his recommendations, invested in The Cooper Institute, and shared the wealth of knowledge far and wide.
