Jimmie Hale Mission’s Rescue Run - 10K, 5K, and 1 Mile Fun Run
Join us for the 4th Annual Jimmie Hale Mission Rescue Run 10K, 5K, & 1 Mile Fun Run! On October 14th, 2023, join us as we proceed through the charming community of Homewood, starting and finishing on 29th Avenue South between 18th St. S. & 19th St. S. Race attendees will receive a high-quality race t-shirt & swag bag filled with goodies. After the race, we will provide post-race food items along with water and sports drink. We will be highlighting Homewood restaurant and business specials. You can stick around for Awards or we will mail your award to you after the event.
We have a 10K Option, which will be a double loop of the 5K. A pretty flat 5K/10 course. The 10K will start at 7:45 am CT, and will be a RUN-only option. There will be a time limit of 1 hour and 45 Minutes (a 17 Minutes/mile pace) to complete the 10K. We need to open the streets of Homewood back up for traffic.

The Jimmie Hale Mission Ministries:
For three-quarters of a century, the Jimmie Hale Mission has been helping men afflicted by homelessness in downtown Birmingham through education remediation, job readiness, and spiritual support. To combat the current plague of substance abuse in our community, the Mission has shifted its focus from rescue to recovery. By addressing these deeper challenges we can help our clients once again become self-sufficient and productive citizens.
This dynamic approach to recovery and independence is offered for free to those in need. Our mission is to transform adults directly affected by homelessness, poverty-thinking, and/or addiction, into those who lead healthy, self-sufficient, and productive lives for the glory of God. Genuine transformation begins here.
