Article

The University of South Alabama Lions Club will host the inaugural Kickoff Run for Sight (5K and 1 mile fun run/walk) on Aug. 24, 2013, at 7:30 a.m. on USA’s main campus - SGA Pavilion/intramural fields. On-site registration will begin at 6 a.m.
Proceeds from the event benefit the University Lions Club's sight preservation and eye research programs.

The Lions Club International is the largest service club organization in the world, founded almost 100 years ago. “Helping those that are in need throughout our community and the world is our main goal as we try desperately to decrease the number of those suffering with visual impairment,” said Tommie Carlisle, president of the University Lions Club.

After the race, the Lions Club will host a celebration providing food, beverages, music, and an awards presentation.

Carlisle said the club is excited to interact with the community. “I hope everyone can take an hour of their day to help support this worthwhile endeavor,” he said.

On-site registration is permitted on race day, but only those registered by Aug. 17 are guaranteed a T-shirt. To register online, click here.
