Sunday August 24 at 9am is the Check Your Genes – Know Your DNA 5K Run and Walk in Crestview Hills, KY. This event is part of a fundraising group for advanced awareness of the genetic and DNA risk of ovarian and breast cancer, so it’s a good thing for all women to know their history.
At the race awards will be given to first overall male and female runners and walkers as well as all age group winners. The award ceremony and refreshments will take place immediately following the race. The race will be chip timed this year, and the race coordinators ask that all participants are sure to properly attach shoe tags for electronic timing and recording and be sure to return them after the race.

Quality Tech Shirts can be purchased by adult runners for an additional $10, and kids may get a race t-shirt for $5.
