Run for the Health of It fundraiser, Oct. 30

The third annual Run for the Health of It will be held Oct. 30.

The third annual Run for the Health of It, a fundraiser of Equal Access Birmingham, has a Halloween theme. The 5K run is 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30, at Rushton Park on Highland Ave. The run features prizes for fastest runners by age group and for best costume. There will be free food for runners and a DJ. There will also be a Kid's Fun Zone for ages 5-12 with face painting, relay races and Halloween games so parents can leave their children in this secure area while they run.

Cost is $20 for students, $25 for non-students and $10 for kids. Proceeds benefit Equal Access Birmingham, a non-profit organization run by UAB medical students committed to providing health care to underserved populations in the Birmingham area.
