The non-profit organization FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) is presenting its 12th Annual Fun Run, this year sponsored by Target. More than 2,000 runners/walkers of all ages are expected to enjoy a 5K/10K run or paddle boarding, natural juice bar, free kids’ activities at the Fun Run Kids’ Zone, vendor tables/health fair, silent auction/raffle and much more. Participants can register individually or create a team with friends and co-workers. Proceeds will help end childhood obesity in the local community through health and wellness programs.
Julie Guy and Evelyn Curry, hosts of the LITE 101.5 FM morning show, will return as co-hosts at the event. The Miami HEAT Dancers will perform as part of a flash mob.
Sponsorships at the $750 to $5,000 levels are available. Some trade opportunities at the $350–$1,000 level are available. School sponsorships are available at the $1,500 level that include training for students to complete the Fun Run. In addition, anyone can donate a raffle item, create a fundraising team, make a donation or sponsor a child.
Last year, more than $14,000 was raised at the event with the support of local communities that shared a common goal to better the lives of today’s youth through health and wellness.
