Meet Our Runners
Team GROW Healthy Kids is GROW Central Florida’s charity running team, made up of a committed group of adult runners from across Central Florida.
Our team is adding meaning to their miles by raising funds for GROW Central Florida programs while training for this iconic endurance event. Funds raised
will be used to grow program initiatives, which include free youth running and fitness programs for kids who would otherwise have little or no access to
regular physical activity. Team GROW Healthy Kids runners are professionals who have a commitment to community health & wellness and embody GROW Central
Florida’s mission to increase opportunities for physical activity and healthy living.
Through participation in this fundraiser, Team GROW Healthy Kids members will help us build a solid foundation to ensure we are able to expand our support
for cross country running teams, distribute shoes to children in need, revitalize playgrounds at low resource schools, and continue outreach initiatives
like our community ball drive for law enforcement.
