Through their continued partnership, Mercedes-Benz and TeamFootWorks will once again host three separate 5K (3.1 mile) runs beginning in Fort Lauderdale on March 24th, West Palm Beach on April 13th and concluding in Miami on April 28th, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the South Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross.
â€œFor the second year, the American Red Cross South Florida Region is honored to be the benefiting charity of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run series, receiving one dollar per participant,â€ said Sam Tidwell, CEO, American Red Cross South Florida Region. â€œWe are dedicated to providing relief to victims of disaster and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
