Miles To Go 5K!

September 24, 2022

Miles To Go Charities was founded in 2018 by a 9 year old boy who saw a need in his community. His strong desire to help the homeless in a meaningful way led to the creation of Miles To Go bags, filled with intentionally curated essential items. To date, Miles To Go has distributed nearly 6,000 bags to the homeless here in Central Florida. Join us in supporting this community-focused effort with your participation in this first annual 5k Run/Walk Fundraiser.

100% of ticket proceeds directly benefit Miles To Go efforts.

The 5K Miles To Go Run/Walk fundraiser is a double-loop course on paved surface, followed immediately after by a celebratory party with food trucks, local vendors and kids’ activities. This is a family-friendly event welcoming participants of all ages. The event will accommodate both experienced runners and more casual walkers/family groups with a staggered start time and wide course.
