The fourth annual “Steps for Healing” 5K on Saturday, Nov 22, at Zoo Miami raised $90,000 for the Children’s Bereavement Center (CBC).
Race participants walked, ran and strolled along the five-kilometer course inside Zoo Miami. Participants enjoyed a Zumba warmup and a prompt 5K start time at 8 a.m. The event was timed by Split Second Timing.
New for the CBC this year, the Kids Fun Run for ages 2-7 took place after the 5K. Each Fun Run participant was awarded a medal as he or she crossed the finish line. Following the races, participants enjoyed coffee, bagels, crepes, fresh fruit, and other delicious treats.
The community support given to the CBC is the most critical element of its success. With programs in Miami-Dade County and Broward County the CBC has been able to help more than 1,000 people this year. Next year, it is anticipated that number may double.
