The 8.11K Fun Run and Walk is being held in conjunction with the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo being held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. This event is being held to raise awareness for the “Call Before You Dig” dial 811 program.

A new, federally-mandated national "Call Before You Dig" number, 811 was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. People digging often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked due to concerns about project delays, costs and previous calls about other projects.

Every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs. Smart digging means calling 811 before each job. Whether you are a homeowner or a professional excavator, one call to 811 gets your underground utility lines marked for FREE. Don't assume you know what's below. Protect yourself and those around you – Call 811 every time.

All profits from this race will go to the Construction Angels and the West Volusia Runners, both 501(c)(3) charities.

'Construction Angels are the first responders to the Road Construction families in need of assistance when a disaster happens.' Construction Angels is a national organization that was created to provide financial assistance to the families of road construction workers who have unfortunately lost their lives while working on the jobsite. In addition to immediate financial assistance, the children left behind may receive money for college, trust funds and counseling during the grieving process.

The West Volusia Runners are part of the Road Runners Club of America and are a not for profit group that is dedicated to growing the running community, promoting a healthy lifestyle and social consciousness by raising money for other local charities.
