Help Spread the Word About 811

You've tackled every type of 5K out there -- or so you thought. How about running or walking a 5K to help spread the word about a phone number that could save lives?

The 811 Run starts at 8:11 a.m. Aug. 12 at Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis.

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 on Facebook. 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. More about 811 at
