1012 Run Away from Violence
Co-chairs Amy Reese, Mandy Cox and Angela Dunn are planning the Run Away from Violence together this year.
The sixth annual Run Away From Violence will be hosted at St. Vincent’s One Nineteen Health and Wellness Center on October 27. Participants have the option to walk or run the scenic 8K race, whose route will take them through the Greystone Founders community. The track is also USATF certified.
Hannah Home Shelby Auxiliary and St. Vincent’s One Nineteen Health and Wellness Center are organizing the race to raise money for the annual operating expenses of the local King’s Home.
King’s Home caters to abused and homeless women and children in the Birmingham area.
Registration for the race is $30. It will begin at 8 a.m., rain or shine. Awards will be given to the top two performers in each age group, as well as on overall female and male winner. There will also be a one-mile Fun Run at 9 a.m.
