"Get off the Couch and MOVE!"
The 5K Healthy Fit and Smart Family Run is open to all runners and walkers. The purpose of this charitable event is to bring attention to the importance of living a healthy, fit and smart lifestyle for you and your families. Healthcare professionals will be on hand at the event to answer questions and provide you with insightful educational resources.
We encourage the Northeast Florida community and the city of Jacksonville especially, to come out and enjoy a nice run or walk and get your 2013 year off to a healthy start! We will have fun activities for the kids and family as we all work together to promote a healthy, fit and smart lifestyle.
A portion of these proceeds from this event will support the Florida Sickle Cell Foundation and The Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation in support of their current initiatives to educate & inform the community about sickle cell and promote healthy living & educational excellence via its mentoring programs across America.
