Cory Watson Attorneys was proud to sponsor the BHM 26.2 race series on April 15, 2018. The race comprised of a full marathon, half marathon, team relay, 5K and fun run, including a marathon course with no repeats or loops.
The best part? All proceeds from the race benefitted Magic Moments, the only wish-granting organization devoted exclusively to children in Alabama with chronic life-threatening illnesses, and the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s of Alabama.
The full marathon course kicked off at Railroad Park and showcased Birmingham’s growth and cityscape, taking runners on a tour through the traditions the Magic City is known for: Children’s of Alabama, Vulcan Park and Museum, The Birmingham Zoo, Avondale, Sloss Furnace, Legion Field, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Alabama Theatre, and then winding back into Railroad Park.
The half marathon took place entirely downtown where runners saw Birmingham’s history and growth first hand as they ran by the Lyric Theater, The Pizitz Building, and the Rotary Trail.
We are honored to run for the children who are chasing a cure! Congratulations to all the BHM 26.2 finishers, and a special shout-out to Beth and Rayna for representing Team Cory Watson so well. We are so proud of you two!
