***After March 5th, shirts are no longer guaranteed as the order will have already been placed, and only a certain number of extras were ordered.***
Anniston Runners and Gadsden Runners get ready for the Canyon Climb 5-miler by doing 3.1 miles of hills with lake views in Centre, AL on March 23, 2019. Plus enjoy your $2 club discount at checkout for the 5k and $5 club discount on the 10k. ***New this year--we hope you love the scenery of our 5k so much that you want to do it twice for the Go Green 10k and receive its accompanying 10k finisher's medal. Local residents of Cherokee County, AL, anyone who knows the Huffmans, or anyone who would like to run so our most precious students in Cherokee County can have better access to educational tools and materials, come out and support our worthy cause!
Sheri Salter Huffman Green has worked tirelessly for those affected by cerebral palsy (CP) and other special needs students in the Cherokee County, AL school district. She has helped bring specialized equipment into the classrooms where it is needed most. Why does Sheri do this? First and foremost, she has a wonderfully giving heart, but she also has a vested interest in providing for those who do not always receive the tools they need to get an education. Her daughter, Grayson, lives with cerebral palsy, but, through Sheri's diligence, she is provided with additional tools she may not have received otherwise.
This year will be the 5th year of the Go Green for Grayson Run. Last year we changed locations to Tates Chapel Baptist Church and added a competitive 5k. As always we will provide a 1 mile fun run, walk, or roll for those of all ages and abilities. Other activities will include inflatables, door prizes, and FOOD!
All proceeds will go for specialized equipment and educational tools for Grayson and her peers in the Cherokee County, AL school district.
We are planning on a rock and ROLL themed race and are working on trophies and special age group awards with that theme. What can we say? Grayson has a taste for all types of music! You can expect to hear her playlist on the day of the race! Come ready to run AND boogie down. We would love to see your costumes because a few of our volunteers need some competition.
5k age group awards will be 1st through 3rd places in 5 year age increments for each gender. Overall trophies will be awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers.
Let's go green for Grayson and Boogie Down to end cerebral palsy!
**Notes: March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month and green is its symbolic awareness color. I'm sensing some green afroes on some runners. Can't wait!
