There is also a kids race. Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety officials hope the run and following safety day event will help educate Minnesotans about the importance of calling before you dig to avoid hitting underground utility lines.You can get more information and register online. All proceeds from the 811 Run will go to Firefighters Operation Warm, an organization that provides warm winter coats to children in need.Whether you are a homeowner or professional excavator, calling 811 before you dig will get your utility lines marked at no cost.
