BSC’s Kappa Delta sorority to host 5K Shamrock Run for the Prevention of Child Abuse

Birmingham-Southern’s Kappa Delta sorority will host its annual Shamrock Run on March 31 beginning at 2 p.m.

Shamrock, both a 5K and 1-mile fun-run event, will be held at The Exceptional Foundation in Homewood at 1616 Oxmoor Road. The registration fee is $20 for the 5K, $10 for the 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk, and free for children 10 and under to participate in the Fun Run/Walk.

All proceeds from the event will benefit The Exchange Club Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse in America and The Exceptional Foundation. BSC’s chapter will join thousands of Kappa Deltas across the country in the fundraiser to benefit local affiliates and chapters of PCA America.

The start and finish line are both located in The Exceptional Foundation’s parking lot. During the race, there will be a children’s activity center inside The Exceptional Foundation. The 5K will begin at 2 p.m. with the Fun Run/Walk starting shortly after at 3 p.m. After the races, participants can join an awards ceremony and a “Shamrockin’ Dinner” complete with door prizes and music.

Paid, preregistrations will receive a T-shirt and one (1) complimentary ticket to the dinner. “Day of race” registrations will receive T-shirts and dinner tickets on a first come/first serve basis.

You can register online at (search for “Kappa Delta”) or pick up a community registration sheet at various locations around town including the YMCA, The Trak Shak, or register on the day of the race starting at 12:30 p.m.
