- Famly Guidance Center Walk/Run 2014
- Saturday, September 13 *7:30 a.m.
Family Guidance Center of Alabama in partnership with The Shoppes at EastChase is preparing for its sixth annual Walk/Run. Each year this event has grown in size and impact, and the September 13, 2014, event offers more than ever before. The event attracts more than 600 registrants and volunteers for race day, and involves runners and walkers of all ages. A patriotic theme honors both the significant timing of this event around 9/11, and the proud tradition of our many neighbors serving in the military at Maxwell and Gunter, and abroad.
This event offers many different activities for individuals and families. In addition to the 5K and 10K courses designed by the River Region Runners, many of the stores at The Shoppes at EastChase open early and offer deep discounts to participants. Gap, Williams-Sonoma, and Bath & Body Works are some of the many participating stores. Refreshments, Color Guard flag presentation, and DJ-hosted music add to the festive spirit. Age-level awards encourage best times among competitive runners, and door prizes allows everyone a chance of going home with a prize.
The Family Guidance Center of Alabama Walk/Run has a positive impact on local families. Your involvement helps provide many services to local families, including:
•job readiness and technology classes for job-seekers
•parenting education seminars to help ensure safe and nurturing homes
•interactive opportunities for couples seeking quality relationships and lifelong marriages
•therapeutic counseling services providing a safety net for individuals and families in crisis
•early start programs to help prepare young children for academic and life success
•wrap around services to help individuals set and attain important life goals
Pre-registration is encouraged; day-of registration is available.
