Blazer Fun Run was a great success!

This past Saturday, October 19th we held the 3rd annual UAB Blazer Fun Run. This year we had close to 500 UAB faculty, staff, student, alumni and their family members on-site for the 2-mile event. Unfortunately there was a little rain on Saturday morning which caused our Finish Line Celebration on the Campus Green to be cut short, but we still had a great time!
