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 and Children's of Alabama 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 5K 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 First Male and Female in each Age Group (every 5 years from age 15 to 75+) will receive prizes. Over all female and male 5K winners in age groups of 7-10 and 11-14 will also be awarded.
