#BeABuddy 5K Run/Walk & Family Health and Fitness Expo at Space Coast Field of Dreams on Saturday, November, 9 2019 from 9 AM-12 PM! Stand Up! Be A Buddy! Get Moving with your family, friends and your community on the Space Coast! Our 2019 Celebrity Grand Marshal will start off our 5K and free family activities and fitness events will follow, complete with Free Kids Fun Run!
Race Amenities include:
Over 13 million children will be bullied this year. Not only are the effects of bullying on a child felt immediately, they can also be lifelong - or even tragic. That’s why The Parker Foundation for Autism and Child Development and other local organizations invite you to join us as we rally around our students, families, and our community to raise awareness of bullying, prevention efforts AND enjoy free family fitness activities at the Expo after the Race!
The Parker Foundation provides free resources to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and related disabilities and their families through funding education, sports and arts programs. Our #BeABuddy 5K celebrates our bullying prevention initiatives, empowers our Peer Buddy Program, and unites the community in a campaign to keep all youth safe from bullying.
