About This Activity

Welcome to the inaugural running of the 2015 Jennifer Burks Memorial Run 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run. Jennifer was an English teacher at Hartselle Junior High School and 5k enthusiast that we lost in 2014 to cancer. By supporting this race, you will help show love and support to her family (Husband Kevin, Connor 15, Hannah 6) and for a cause near and dear to every adult heart: the health of our children. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the students in the Hartselle City School System through The IMPACT Wellness Initiative. The IMPACT program started this year at Hartselle Junior High School, and its mission is to provide an environment and culture in our schools that educates and supports students, staff, families, and the community in the pursuit of living a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and good nutritional habits. This initiative will hopefully serve as a model across the state for other schools and parents concerned about Alabama’s obesity epidemic.

We welcome runners and walkers of all levels and speeds and especially encourage children and their families to participate in this event.
