Infirmary Health is thrilled to announce a new fall event: Sunshine Sprint. Scheduled for September 28, 2024, Sunshine Sprint will feature an 8K race and 1-mile fun run. The race will start on the campus of North Baldwin Infirmary and will wind through historic downtown Bay Minette. This inaugural race marks the retirement of the beloved RIDEYELLOW charity bike ride. After 15 years of remarkable success, the race will pave the way for a fresh and new invigorating tradition.

The Sunshine Sprint committee aims to continue the spirit of community involvement and charitable giving that RIDEYELLOW embodied. The Sunshine Sprint allows participants of all ages and fitness levels to engage in a healthy, fun, and community-centric activity while continuing to raise awareness and funds for Rapahope and childhood cancer.

"We are incredibly excited to launch Sunshine Sprint," says Kenny Breal, president of North Baldwin Infirmary. “RIDEYELLOW will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we are excited to continue its mission of raising money for childhood cancer through Sunshine Sprint. The run promotes fitness and fun and continues our mission to support local community organizations like Rapahope.”

Participants can look forward to a picturesque course offering a mix of challenging and enjoyable segments for serious runners and casual walkers. The event will feature:

  • 8K Race: For competitive runners looking for a new challenge.
  • 1-Mile Fun Run: Perfect for families, beginners, and anyone wanting to enjoy a leisurely pace.
