Benjamin Lee Knight

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.
