For eight years, our United Way has been the charity of choice for the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run. South Florida’s largest office party is more than just one of the largest 5K races in the nation; it unites our community in the fight for a stronger Miami.
The race, which is produced by FootWorks, has grown substantially from just 1,315 participants in its first year to now more than 28,000 participants from over 850 companies. Thanks to this generous partnership, our United Way has received $188,243 in proceeds from the race since 2013.
This year, Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run celebrates 35 years. There will be fireworks, and every finisher gets a medal. And because of your participation in the race, you’re giving every person in Miami-Dade the best reward of all: a fighting chance.
“We understand the value of partnering with someone who gives so much back to the community,” says Laurie Huseby, owner of FootWorks Miami. “It’s our pleasure as a 501(c)(3) to team up with someone whose views are aligned with ours when it comes to helping others.”
