It’s so gratifying to see so many South Florida companies continue to embrace health and wellness as part of their workplace culture. We believe that healthy employees create healthy companies; add to that a race filled with smiles and camaraderie – that’s what the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run is all about,” said Laurie Huseby, race director.

To generate excitement for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, TeamFootWorks will host team captain rallies on Wednesday, February 5, in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and on Wednesday, February 12, in downtown Miami.

Each run will be held at the following locations:

Race date: Thursday, April 2, 2020 – 6:45 P.M.

The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series attracts participants from more than 1,200 South Florida companies and incorporates a special competition to award the overall male, female, and co-ed teams in 20 different industries.

The run is open to employees of businesses, corporations, government agencies, financial institutions, and non-profits. Known as “Florida’s Largest Office Party”, everyone is encouraged to join their company team to walk or run as a group. Beginners can “ease into exercise” with friends, gain inspiration and motivation to continue walking and running to improve overall health, while competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers and lead the corporate team to victory. Often this is the first step towards greater health and wellness amongst South Florida employees and their companies.

Sponsors of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines include Mercedes-Benz USA, Turkish Airlines, Baptist Health South Florida, Atlantic Broadband Business, Headsweats, Club Med, and Concrete Beach Brewery. Media partners include NBC 6, The Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, iHeart Radio, Brickell Magazine, Outfront Media and more.

The enchantment of the holidays is bringing many celebrations to Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, including the kick-off of the storied home and estate’s 100th anniversary. The Friday, Dec. 6 Holiday Magic Soirée, the official 100th anniversary kick-off event, will be followed by a special Holiday Magic Week of events to continue the celebration.

The Dec. 6 Holiday Magic Soiree, a fully catered affair by A Alexander Event Catering, will kick off the centennial celebration in style with live entertainment by electric violinist Jared Burnett and electric harpist Deanna Defrancesco. A full bar, holiday music and plenty of festive décor will welcome guests. Designer-decorated trees, wreaths and centerpieces will adorn Bonnet House during the event, and will be on sale throughout the week.

The Holiday Magic Soirée will take place from 6:30–9:30 p.m. A VIP reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and include an early viewing of the trees, wreaths and centerpieces displayed throughout the house, along with a fully catered champagne reception in the citrus courtyard, and 100th anniversary commemorative holiday ornament. The cost per person for the Soirée is $75; the cost for the Soirée and VIP Reception is $100 per person. The 2018 event hosted a sellout crowd of 500 people.
