nas scholarship run 2017The University of Alabama at Birmingham National Alumni Society will host the 2017 Scholarship Run 5K/10K presented by Viva Health on Friday, May 12.

In 2016, the NAS Scholarship Run brought in $65,000 to support UAB student scholarships. Over the last decade, support of the Scholarship Run has allowed the NAS to give more than $500,000 to deserving students in the forms of scholarships, gifts and grants.

Registration now through Thursday, May 11, is $30, and $35 on race day. Register online.

This year, the NAS is excited to welcome the UAB Football team as the honorary starters for the 11th annual race.

The 2017 Scholarship Run will again include a post-race party at the UAB Alumni House, 1301 10th Ave. South. This year, race-goers will enjoy bouncy houses, Dreamland Bar-B-Que, Doodle’s Homemade Sorbets and Ices, beer from Cahaba Brewing, and live music from Yellowhammer Seauxl.

Last year, more than 600 alumni and friends came to the UAB Alumni House to enjoy picture-perfect weather for the 10th annual run and help the NAS support student scholarships.
