ALL ACCESS PASS

Go Big or Go Home! The Insane Inflatable 5K offers individuals the chance to register for the “All Access Pass,” giving them the ability to run in any wave time, even if that wave is sold out. The All Access Pass comes with a special wristband color (handed out at packet pickup), which allows you to enter the starting line corral for any wave time you choose. In addition, it also gives you a $20 merchandise credit to get some sweet swag at our on-site merchandise tent.

Most of our events sell out and often times people do not get to run in the waves their friends are running in. The All Access Pass gets you into the wave with your friends even if it’s sold out. For all you procrastinators out there – you’re welcome!

RONALD McDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF ALABAMA

Insane Inflatable 5K is proud to announce that we have partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama.

About The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama cares for 41 families every night, providing them with a home away from home while their children receive medical treatment in Birmingham. In addition to providing a comfortable bedroom with a private bathroom, we surround our families with love and support from our volunteers, staff and other guest families who share the same hopes and fears. We provide home-cooked meals, family programs and activities, indoor and outdoor play areas, laundry facilities, computers, WiFi, and much more so that our guest families can concentrate on what is most important — their child’s health.

Large-RMHCA-Horiztonal-Color-Transparent.pngIn Tuscaloosa, our Family Room at DCH Regional Medical Center is an inviting oasis of calm for families, while increasing their ability to advocate for their child. They are able to find comfort, care and support without leaving their child’s side.
By keeping families close to each other and the care they need, we may not be able to make the medicine taste better or take away the painful treatments, but with the help of our supporters we can lessen the burden and ensure families have the stability and resources to get and keep their child healthy and happy.

How Can You Help? Add a Few Bucks When You Register!
