On November 5, 2022, Equal Access Birmingham (EAB), a free medical clinic run by medical students from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Heersink School of Medicine, is hosting the 8th annual Heart + Sole 5K Run virtually in order to raise money to further our mission -- to provide free medical care, medication, and health education to medically uninsured or underinsured residents of Birmingham. We staff two clinics each week, occurring Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. We also hold a monthly Mental Health Clinic. EAB strives to promote health and wellness in the Birmingham community.
We anticipate at least 300 runners and their families to participate. All proceeds will be used to support the operations of Equal Access Birmingham through the EAB Gift and Endowment Fund. Feel free to gather with family and friends, and choose one of the provided 5K routes below to take part or create your own!
UABHSOM students may sign up with their Learning Community and compete against other Learning Communities for most participation.
For STUDENTS: To ensure you receive your t-shirt by race day, order by 11:59 p.m. on OCTOBER 10th! Early bird pricing includes a $5 discount. T-shirts will be available for pick-up at Volker Hall at Noon on November 4th.
For NON-STUDENTS: We will be shipping your t-shirts to your home address! Shirts shipped to home addresses will arrive after November 5.
EAB holds a dual mission: 1) to provide high-quality health care to underserved and vulnerable populations in Birmingham, and 2) to provide enriching service learning experiences for medical students and other health professional students. This is all made possible by your support! To donate: either use the platform included in race registration or follow this link EAB Online Giving to the UAB Giving platform.
