Event Description

Join us for the Helping Hands Half Marathon, 5K, and a 1-Mile Fun Run in Florence, AL.

Bank Independent's Helping Hands Program was founded in 2011 following the devastating April 27 tornado outbreak.  The program has since grown into the Helping Hands Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors across the communities we serve.  Our commitment to giving back has only grown stronger over the years, driven by our founders' belief that "a rising tide lifts all boats."  That's why we're proud to partner with and support local organizations, teams, and efforts that align with Bank Independent's Mission and Values.  

Our event will take place at the Marriott Conference Center, which is located at 10 Hightower Place, Florence, Alabama 35630.  Parking is available on-site.
