The 4th annual UAB Blazer Fun Run drew more than 400 registered participants for a two-mile trek through campus and the Railroad Park district.

Starting and ending at Dowdy Field, the September 20 event brought together employees and their families, students, and alumni. UAB Wellness Director, Meg Baker, says the family-friendly event was designed to promote UAB's health and wellness programs while showing appreciation to our UAB community.

Students from the UAB School of Education's Department of Kinesiology offered skinfold analyses and blood pressure screenings. UAB Weight Loss Medicine provided registered dieticians to offer nutritional counseling and information about their services.

UAB Employee Wellness would like to thank the many volunteers that made this year's event a huge success, including UAB's Campus Recreation Center, the Hospital Health Club, the Department of Human Studies, the School of Education, and the Department of Human Resources.
