    Blazer Bolt is a 501c3 organization Tax Exempt # 47-4030497  whose annual event is the Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer. This race was created entirely to support those who are battling brain cancer. All proceeds will directly benefit the University of Alabama Birmingham Division of Neuro Oncology for research of adult and pediatric brain cancer as well as patient support services. Patients, family, and friends will enjoy a flat, fast 5 K course through the scenic Homewood neighborhoods in late autumn starting at 8 AM.  A 1 mile walk/fun run will begin at 9 AM.  Chip timing for instant results for the 5K will be provided by DG Racing. Overall Male & Female, Master’s Male & Female, and Top Three in each Age Group (every 5 years from age 15 to 75+) will receive   unique hand crafted pottery fired in a wood kiln created by elite marathon runner, Pablo Sierra. Unique prizes for overall female and male 5K winners in age groups of  7-10 and 11-14 will be also be awarded.  This year participants will again enjoy access to expertise information and sample a unique recipe created by oncologist and chef, Dr. Luis F. Pineda MD, founder of Cooking with Cancer.
