Run For Your Brain 5k

Florence, AL

Join us for a Race and Family Fun Day to raise awareness about stroke prevention and what to do if someone is having a stroke. Time is Brain and every minute counts! All proceeds from this Race and Family Day will go to the NARA Stroke Support Group

The "Run For Your Brain 5k and Family Fun Run" is designed to get families together while having fun being active and learning how to live a healthier lifestyle every day.
Through the race, our goal is to educate people about their risk factors and how to prevent a stroke from devastating your life or the life of someone you love, while supporting Nortwest Alabama Reading Aides (NARA).

NARA provides free tutoring in reading, writing and English language skills to adults who have suffered a stroke in Colbert, Franklin and Lauderdale Counties.  NARA also offers stroke support groups to stroke victims.
