Just a Call Away 2021 

So happy to be a sponsor for the 7th year for Just a Call Away 5K to benefit the work of the Crisis Center Birmingham in our community.

Just A Call Away 5K, the Crisis Center’s annual 5K and Fun Run, was launched in 2015 with the generous help of our friends at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department to help raise funds to support the Crisis Center’s services and programs. Since its inaugural year, the event has grown to be a sensational attraction for runners, families and friends of the Crisis Center. In addition to a 5K and Fun Run, the event features fun for your entire family – pups included!

 Visit their website to get more information on the great programs they offer those in need. Home – Crisis Center (
