Friends of Myakka River
Florida Compassion Foundation

With your entry fee or donation, you will be helping to protect and preserve the wild and scenic Myakka River, and help the families of people fighting Alzheimer disease. You are also helping fund the research to find a cure. Run this race in memory of someone you love that is fighting this disease now or a loved one who has already lost their battle to Alzheimer. We are hosting the event in loving memory of Charlene Corniel, mother of Co-Race Director Kimberly Hussey, who died as a result of Alzheimer Disease at the young age of 68. This beautiful course runs through the park all on paved roads under tree canopies along the shores of Myakka Lake. This is Real Florida. This course will be USATF Certified. There will be a great after party and lots of perks!
