Forging Families 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run

We are a group of volunteers who believe in the power of family, who believe that all children deserve a safe, loving home in which to grow up.  Sacred Selections is a not-for-profit organization that assists families in their quest to adopt a child.  It’s a pretty amazing organization.  They operate with a volunteer board and has no administrative costs.  Their expenses are paid for by the individuals who serve.

All proceeds will be donated to Sacred Selections to reduce the financial burden on a family willing to give a child a home.  Funds will be sent directly to Sacred Selections and this year will be specifically to help Loren and Jennifer Russell of Wilsonville with their adoption.  

Contact Joel Dixon @ [email protected] with any questions.

 Race day registration and packet pick up will begin at 7:00 AM on Saturday, January 11th at the Shelby County Arts Council. 

The course is fast and flat and promises a great opportunity at your next PR! We will begin and end at the brand new Shelby County Arts Council facility. Although the course is an open course, the City of Columbiana is partnering with us and providing police to control the flow of traffic to ensure runners are safe.

When the race is done, stick around and check out this beautiful facility and enjoy Columbiana’s quaint Main Street, visit our local businesses for unique shopping and enjoy the warmth of small town USA!
