BALLIN’ ON BELROSE SET FOR APRIL 22 IN OLDE TOWNE DAPHNE
March 6, 2023 (Daphne, Ala.): 68 Ventures and the Cox Family Foundation will once again host the Ballin’ on Belrose event in Olde Towne Daphne on Saturday, April 22, 2023. Registration opens at 7 a.m. with the race beginning at 8 a.m. at Belrose Park on Belrose Avenue in Daphne. This walk/race is being held to benefit the Baller Dream Foundation.
The Baller Dream Foundation team works to help local brave young warriors, and their families, impacted by cancer by offering events to help raise their spirits and celebrate their lives.
Ballin’ on Belrose is a walk based on the premise of the 29029 Everesting Challenge but pared down for our local community with a race up Belrose Avenue, culminating with a street party at the top of the hill with refreshments, music, a kids’ area and camaraderie. Thanks to the support of the City of Daphne, Belrose Avenue will be blocked off from 7:00 a.m. to Noon the day of the event to allow participants to complete the challenge safely.
Mt. Everest is 29,029 feet tall, meaning its formidable peak sits at 5.5 miles above sea level. Using that elevation as our inspiration, we created a climbing challenge where racers will travel a linear walking distance of 29,029 ft in up and down the hill on Belrose Avenue. Our “Everest Challenge,” while inspired by the brave climbers who ascend Mount Everest, is a community event appropriate for racers of all ages and fitness levels. Climb the hill just once or ascend it 11 times to complete the challenge - it’s all about showing up and having fun.
To accept the full race challenge, or challenge yourself and join in the fun for just a few climbs, sign up for only $25 per racer at ballinonbelrose.com.
