Second Annual Florida Conference 5K
Breakers Oceanfront Park and Daytona Beach Pier
Thursday, June 11, 2015
The FLCA5K Team invites you to join us for the Second Annual Florida Conference 5K. We will gather on picturesque Daytona Beach to run and walk as a community committed to improving personal health and raising support to end malaria. The FLAC5K raised $5K for 5K last year and kicked off the Annual Conference's support of the Imagine No Malaria Campaign. Our hope is that this Annual Conference we can match - and hopefully surpass - $5K for 5K as our Conference works towards our goal of raising $2.5 million dollars to help end malaria.
Now is the time to begin training for the 5K. Consider using a Couch-2-5K program (like c25k.com) or simply adding a little extra physical activity to your life every day. Take a walk. Take the stairs. Stand instead of sit. Get outside with your family and your pets. Every step is a step towards greater health and wholeness!
Registration for FLAC5K will open April 1. You may register on or after April 1st by visiting http://www.flumc.org/annualconference2015. If you have any questions please contact Rev. Sarah Miller at email@example.com.
