Run for Your Life 5K Color Run

September 24 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Run for Your Life 5K

Bring your family and friends (including the furry ones) to run/walk for a cause and for fun at our 5th annual Run For Your Life 5K Color Run! You can help us spread awareness about substance misuse in Alachua County and fundraise for our mission to provide substance use prevention services to youth and adults in our community.

The event will open with breakfast for participants, a warm-up session, and important information about substance use such as narcan demonstrations from UF Health Florida Recovery Center. There will also be a community fair with plenty of resources from local organizations and an activity area full of games for kids before the 5K begins. During the fun run, there will be multiple powder stations, so be ready! At the end of the 5K, we will announce the raffle ticket winners and hand out medals. To conclude, we’ll have an Instagram-worthy group photo! Register now to save with Early Bird prices until September 14th, groups of 8 or more have a discount.
