Why We Run

Equal Access Birmingham, a student-run organization through UAB School of Medicine, provides health care and education to uninsured and underserved members in the Birmingham community. The Heart + Sole 5K/Fun Run is a family friendly event open to participants of all ages. The Fun Run will begin at 7:30am for children ages 3-8. The 5K will begin at 8:00am on the UAB Campus Green. We look forward to seeing you at the start line!

All proceeds will be used to support the operations of Equal Access Birmingham that will impact today and impact tomorrow through the EAB’s current-use support fund and the EAB endowed support fund.

After the Race

Join us for the EAB Health Fair after the race! We will have a variety of students and organizations providing healthcare information and screenings on the UAB Campus Green. This is a great opportunity to meet students, faculty, and physicians in the Birmingham community while learning about your health!


Putting on a 5K is no small feat, and we'd love a helping hand from you. Click here to volunteer.
