WeightManagement BIRMINGHAM – According to recent statistics, as much as 32 percent of Alabama’s youth are considered obese. On Saturday, May 25, money raised at the eighth-annual Spring Scramble 5K and 1 mile Fun Run will benefit the Children’s Center for Weight Management (CCWM) and the LESTER Program. Sponsored by the UAB pediatric residents, the race is also being held to educate and inspire healthy lifestyle choices for all of our communities’ youngsters.
The event is open to the public and registration is $20 for all UAB or Children’s employees. General public prices are $25 per individual. All students under 12 years old race for free if they recruit an adult to run. The registration fee includes a T-shirt and goodie bag. Preregistration is required and can be made by visiting www.springscramble.org.
The race begins at 8 a.m. and the starting line is located at the Trak Shak in downtown Homewood (2839 18th St S.).
Individual awards will be given for the 5k format only. Awards will be given for the 1st and 2nd place male and female in each age group. Awards will also be given to the overall male and female top finishers (1st, 2nd and 3rd place). Runners must be present to collect their prizes.
