(Miami, Florida) – The 2nd annual 5K Freedom Run & PARK Festival took place on September 8th at the JC Bermudez Park in Doral.
This project is the brainchild of community leader, philanthropist and entrepreneur, Marlene Quincoces, also known throughout the community as MarlyQ.
The 5K Freedom Run & PARK Festival is a volunteer-driven philanthropic event to remember, honor and celebrate American heroes. The event celebrates life, service and the people, companies and organizations who Perform Acts of Random Kindness (PARK) everyday.
Hundreds of people across South Florida gathered at JC Bermudez Park to run, jog or walk alongside military men and women, veterans and first responders in appreciation of their service and commitment to our freedom. A moment of silence was observed at 9:11 a.m. in commemoration of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Univision’s Satcha Pretto was among the runners and won first prize in her category – women ages 30-34.
The City of Doral served as Presenting “Parkner.”
