Oct 17, 2013 No Comments by

Taylor & Mathis of Florida will host Miami’s biggest networking 5K event November 8th. to benefit Miami Children’s Hospital.

The 7th annual Waterford 5K Race (www.waterford5k.com) is held at the Waterford at Blue Lagoon Corporate Park in Miami where Taylor & Mathis leases and manages eight office buildings on behalf of owners MetLife and DRA Advisors.  FedEx is the lead sponsor for the event with other major sponsors including MetLife, Club Med, Breitling, Taylor & Mathis, TIAA-CREF, Hogan, MAPFRE Insurance, TW Telecom, Regus, OrthoNOW, DRA Advisors, ThyssenKrupp and Brickell Magazine.

An avid runner, Taylor & Mathis Senior Property Manager Peter Romero began the event seven years ago as part of a tenant relations program geared towards tenants in the park to boost individual and corporate morale.  In that time it has grown to include 2,000 participants with over $133,000 donated to charity.  Produced by TeamFootWorks the race now attracts a diverse array of participants with the top runner winning a $5,000 Breitling watch.

“There is good reason everyone loves this race. It’s well organized in a beautiful location with the absolute best post-race party on the racing circuit, according to Romero. “We even have a Family Fun Zone with these really cool mega-inflatables for adults and kids. I haven’t seen this before at other races.” Kohl’s will be distributing FREE bicycle helmets to all kids while supplies last. There will be food trucks, music and free sampling from selected vendors showcasing healthy lifestyle products.  The award winning West Broward High Performance Ensemble marching band will be performing along the race’s home stretch. After crossing the finish line, everyone is encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and enjoy the post-5k party.  The highlight of the race will be the glow themed after-party, according to Romero. “Our top DJ and dancers will keep the party going with black lights, giveaways, special lighting, and more. We encourage participants to Go Glow!” The first 500 people to register will receive complimentary premium glow wear or LED accessories.

The Waterford 5K promotes running and walking as a means to a fit, healthy lifestyle. This is an event for runners and walkers of all abilities.  Beginners can walk the course enjoying the camaraderie of the event. Competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers and perhaps lead a corporate team to victory.  Even families will enjoy this event with a designated Family Fun Zone.  The first 500 registrants will receive complimentary premium glow wear or LED accessories.
