Healthy Kids is calling all runners.

The organization is holding its first annual 5K/10K run on Saturday.

“You can walk, run or crawl, but come out and support our community,” said Lisa Nimmer, executive director of Healthy Kids.

Runners and walkers can register for Saturday’s race early by visiting www.healthykidsal.org, or can simply register the day of the race.

The entry fee is $25 for early entry and $30 the day of the race.

According to Nimmer, runners will also be treated to post-race massages, and will be cheered on every half mile by bands, cheerleaders, dance teams and drum lines.

There will also be Disney characters, face painting and air jumps in Confederate Park following the race.

The race will begin at 9 a.m. at Confederate Park.

For more information call (334) 371-2104.
