The Floridant/10199351

Race to benefit education and educators. Fun community event.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Floridant -- Runners and walkers of all ages will lace up their sneakers for the We LOVE Teachers 5K on Saturday, November 12, 2022. The race/walk will be held at beautiful Blanchard Park, located at 2451 North Dean Rd, Orlando FL 32817.  This is the beginning of the Florida Race Series with Tampa on February 4, 2023 and Jacksonville on February 18, 2023.

50% of registration fees go directly to the school or school organization of the participant's choice.  The balance of the net proceeds go into a supply treasure chest for teachers to access.

"We're delighted to put on this event.  It is a chance for the community to celebrate educators.  It is a chance to appreciate health and being active.  We know that when educators are healthier, they perform better and thus education itself is improved.  The energy and encouragement from the community means a lot.  We want people to leave the event with a burning desire to continue moving forward on their health journey." said race organizer Rodney Tew. "From our Atlanta race in July, we were able to make contributions to over 30 schools.  We'll be doing 21 races across North America between now and the end of 2023.  Our goal is to provide funds to over 1,000 schools.  We absolutely believe it's doable."
