For two years, SportsFit of Leakesville has sponsored a 5K to promote health and fitness and to benefit local schools with PE equipment. This 5k has taken place the first week of February. This year the date will change.
Due to poor weather conditions in December, Leakesville Elementary School had to postpone their 5K Color Run to this Saturday, Jan 20th. As it would be so close to the date we normally have our 5K, we will reschedule ours to a later date.
We encourage you to support LES in their 5K Color Run this weekend and support all our local schools.
We will announce our Sportsfit 5K at a later date.
Saturday, October 21, 2017 marked the inaugural run for the Alabama State University Annual Benjamin Lee Knight Memorial 5K. It was a fantastic fall day to remember Ben, a recent physical therapist graduate from Alabama State (ASU). He passed away June 4, 2017 while hiking in the mountains of Arizona. His fellow students have organized this annual 5K to honor him and his legacy. Ben was known as a selfless servant, a defender of the broken and widowed, and a tender-hearted man who lived life to the fullest by deeply loving those around him.
Encore Rehabilitation is proud to partner with ASU to sponsor this event. Over 100 runners registered for this year’s run. Monies from the event go to local charities and organizations. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s run.
Encore Performance Rehab was proud to be involved with the Heights Heroes 5K held October 14, 2017 in Birmingham, Alabama. This event supports the Vestavia Elementary Cahaba Heights PTO.

We appreciate everyone for coming out to support the event!
