Registration is now open for the seventh annual FedEx Waterford 5K in Miami! Set to wind its way through Waterford at Blue Lagoon Office Park on Fri., Nov. 8, at 6:45 p.m., the run/walk, which is produced by Taylor & Mathis and TeamFootWorks, will benefit the children and families at Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital and will feature a post race glow-themed party, South Floridaâ€™s favorite food trucks, top prizes, a kidâ€™s play zone, giveaways and more.
While the race course will take participants on a winding journey through Miamiâ€™s premier office park, the real party will begin after the first runners cross the finish line. New this year, participants will be treated to a post-race glow-themed dance party. Participants are encouraged to don their own glowing accessories and help light up the night. The first 500 participants to register will also receive premium glow gear.
Open to individuals, families, companies and businesses, prizes will be awarded to the top five male and female runners. The top finisher in each category will also have the chance to win a Breitling Watch.
â€œWeâ€™re so honored to be in the position to give back to the Miami community for the seventh year in a row,â€ said Peter Romero, senior property manager, Taylor & Mathis. â€œWith strong partners, like the Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital Foundation, the race continues to grow year after year. Weâ€™re looking forward to record registration this year.â€
For the third year, the FedEx Waterford 5K will donate 100 percent of its proceeds and focus its efforts on providing additional funding for Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to create awareness and generate funds for Miamiâ€™s only licensed specialty hospital in South Florida exclusively for children, while ensuring that all children have access to state-of-the-art pediatric care. To date, the run/walk has raised more than $100,000 in support of local causes.
â€œWe are incredibly grateful to FedEx, Taylor & Mathis and all of the participants that are making childrenâ€™s health care a priority in our community,â€ said Lucy Morillo-Agnetti, President and CEO of Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital Foundation. â€œLast year, this event raised more than $30,000 for the Foundation, greatly benefiting the children and families that rely on Miami Childrenâ€™s Hospital in their greatest time of need.â€
