Helena High School
Hosted by Open Hands Overflowing Hearts

Join us for a beautiful run through the hills of Helena as you support your favorite childhood cancer-focused charity. Before gathering at the starting line, you can honor a loved one by releasing a balloon in their memory. As you make your way along the challenging course, you'll admire the sweet faces of children who have faced a cancer diagnosis, and you'll appreciate the strength and courage they had as they navigated their own challenging journeys. When you cross the finish line, you can restore your energy with tasty treats, and you'll receive a one-of-a-kind locally crafted medal that will identify you among the community as a proud advocate for victims of childhood cancer.

Don't miss this race on Easter Weekend. Bring your family, your friends, your dogs, and your passion to Birmingham's best race, and stand up against childhood cancer as you RUN FOR THEIR LIVES!
