Unigroup’s annual 5-K event now has 10-K race

In celebration of its 10th annual United Way 5-K event, UniGroup has expanded the event to include a 10-K race.

The races will take place at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8. All proceeds benefit the United Way of Greater St. Louis. The run is hosted by UniGroup, the parent company of United Van Lines, Mayflower and other transportation-related companies.
