Rock ‘N Run, an incredible day of health, strength and spirit, was created to unite our community in the fight against breast and ovarian cancer and raise awareness to enhance prevention and early detection. Last year almost $50,000 was raised and distributed to a variety of causes supporting research, awareness and support for women in the community. This year, Rock ‘N’ Run will support, among others, University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center-Cancer Link, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Women’s Breast and Heart Health Initiative, Sandy B. Muller Breast Cancer Foundation, Sharsheret and FORCE.
“Rock ‘N Run plays an important role in the fight against breast and ovarian cancer by bringing passionate community members together to raise awareness about the diseases, while providing education and vital resources for local organizations serving women in our community,” says Andrea Ivory of Women’s Breast and Heart Health Initiative. “This effort helps to save and change lives. We are so honored to be a part of it!”
Rock ‘N Run will kick off with an energizing warm up, led by Orange Theory Fitness, and be followed by a scenic and certified 5K run through Pinecrest. Those choosing to “Rock” will be treated to a cardio-blasting dance class with Videosync’s legendary Jay Marcos. A delicious breakfast buffet will follow, along with an awards ceremony for runners.
Rock ‘N Run is a not for profit organization with all proceeds going directly to the recipient charities. The organizers of this amazing initiative are breast and ovarian cancer survivors and alivers, and friends and family of survivors.
