Workout Description:

5K And 10K Run Event

Asheville Eye Associates 7th Annual Run the Forest 5K and 10K Run is a community wellness event which will benefit a local non-profit organization each year. Asheville Eye continues to support our regional community health and wellness in many aspects. The Biltmore Forest is a beautiful destination for this race and a way to relax, enjoy nature, have fun, and support a local organization!

This year Asheville Eye Associates is proud to be partnering with Our Voice, a non-profit crisis intervention and prevention agency which serves victims of sexual violence, age 13 through adult, in Buncombe County. The agency was founded in 1974 as an all-volunteer, grassroots organization. The agency remained underground until August 1983 when it received 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit agency. To learn more about this incredible organization, please visit their website.
