Montgomery runners up for the challenge

May 24, 2013 by  

This weekend will see the 35th year of the Jubilee Run in Montgomery, Alabama. The run, which is sponsored by Alfa Insurance, is the oldest running event in the city.

The proceeds from it will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The event is open to competitive runners and leisurely walkers alike, and is also wheelchair accessible.

There are two routes to be tackled, one of which is two miles long, while the other is an 8K. Both start and end in Old Alabama Town, which is the historic section of the city.

In 2012, Alfa teamed up with the Jubilee CityFest organization to create the Jubilee CityFest Run, which featured a variety of entertainment spectacles and demonstrations, including a farmers’ market, Wellness Expo, and activities for children. By the end of the year, the organization had revitalized downtown Montgomery. Having completed its stated mission, the organization closed, but the Alfa team will no doubt be working hard to bring a similarly successful experience to the run this year.

Organizers for the run might have turned to printing companies to help with the event. Flyer printing companies can create advertising material so that people know to turn out for the event and support the cause, while Brochure printing companies can also help supply informational brochures about the American Cancer Society’s programs and the progress they have made in combating cancer.

The Jubilee Run takes place tomorrow, May 25, and the event’s website has further details.
