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.
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.
