Hoover’s Veterans Park will host the inaugural Kenya Relief 5K Run on August 25. Race time is 8 a.m. with registration beginning at 7 a.m.
This is a family friendly event with food and entertainment. Kids are encouraged to make cards at the event to send to the Kenya Relief orphans.
The race benefits Kenya Relief, a non- profit organization of people dedicated to making a difference and towards building the Kenya Relief Hospital in Migori, Kenya, a community in desperate need of adequate health services.
After August 1, the race entry fee is $25. Awards will be given by age groups and to the top three male and female finishers.
