Come join the fight against violence at Miami’s 5K PARK Fest taking place Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the historic Virginia Key Beach Park. The 5K PARK Fest, sponsored by The Office Depot Foundation, will honor a stand against acts of violence by raising money for charitable causes. The funds will go to local nonprofits and schools, as well as civic and faith-based organizations.
All you have to do is PARK! Thousands of people are expected to attend the effort in raising awareness against recent violence that has been taking place across the country. This in unlike any 5K. The 5K PARK Fest is not a race to the finish line. It’s emphasis is on getting people to spread random acts of kindness.
