Children bursting with energy hurriedly ran behind Santa and Mrs. Clause who led the procession of the 1-Mile Fun Run in their red and white colored smart car. Dozens of family members, friends and volunteers could be seen at the finish line, decked out in their holiday gear, loudly cheering on each of the 5K & Fun Run participants.
The Family Day Festival featured interactive activities for children of all ages, including mini golf, face painting, a snow cone machine, ice cream, cotton candy, a friendly corn hole competition and special appearances from story book princesses and superheroes.
Thanks to the support of event participants and event sponsors including Presenting Sponsors: Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Brooks Rehabilitation, Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, UF Health Proton Therapy and UF Health, the Light Up The House 5K raised more than $60,000 for the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville.
If you are interested in joining the event committee to help plan next year’s run, please contact Marketing Manager, Ashley Strickland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The fundraising doesn’t end until December 31st!
