The 2013 Blazer Fun Run was a great success!

On Saturday, October 19th we held the 3rd annual UAB Blazer Fun Run. 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!
