Northwood was contacted by Laura Duzan and below is additional information she provided.
My name is Laura Duzan, and I am a member of the Junior League of Birmingham . I am on the committee for the 3rd Annual Dash for Destiny that will be held on Sunday, May 22 at Shain Park in downtown Birmingham. The Dash for Destiny is a family event that includes a 5K run/walk and a 1-Mile Fun Run.
We are reaching out to local community groups and schools in order promote participation. Getting local families involved corresponds to the League’s vision to improve and protect the quality of life for children by leading and empowering the community to make positive changes in the area of children’s health and wellness . Endorsed by the Governor’s Council of Physical Fitness, Health and Sports, the proceeds from our race are directed back into the surrounding communities with additional programming that promotes children’s health and wellness such as our Kids in the Kitchen events. Additionally, May is Celebrate National Fitness & Sports Month , and May 15 -May 22 is National Running & Fitness Week… perfect timing for this family fun event!
