Orlando, Florida, (January 12, 2022) – Orlando Main Street district Curry Ford West is excited to announce their first ever 5K and Fun Run event. This will serve as a large fundraiser for the local Main Street District as it intends to offer even more community programming and beautification to support the area.
The early morning race will take place within the Curry Ford West district boundaries as well as taking participants through local Lake Como neighborhoods on Saturday, February 26th. This event aims to help to re-connect with neighbors and illustrate the uniqueness of the suburban area just southeast of Downtown Orlando.
“I’m excited for Curry Ford Road to get an event like this,” Event Chair and local Property Manager, Edna Trimble said, “It gets everyone moving early in the morning and even the kids can get involved. The medals are great quality and I mean, who doesn't love swag bags?”
A race of this magnitude is exciting for a district that isn’t one of the more commonly-known Main Street districts who have become popular household names. At their recent Picture Perfect Holidays event, the organizer of the Belles and Bows from Central Florida Vocal Artists, Theresa Smith-Levin, shared her take on the district’s charm:
“You guys do such a good job at making this feel homey. We do a lot of these events around, everywhere, and it just always feels so comfortable here, so thank you for that. We’ll definitely be back because this is one of our favorite events.”
All participants will receive event swag bags and t-shirts. The first 500 adult registrations will receive commemorative 5K Finisher medals and all kids registered for the Fun Run will get participation medals. The race map and registration are available on Eventbrite along with the schedule of events; the Kid’s Fun Run will follow the 5K. Anyone interested is encouraged to register soon for early-bird discounts! You can register the morning of the event, but your swag may be subject to delays.
This event would not be made possible without the generosity of our event Sponsors: Swiss House, Elokuent, Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream, Alicia Spears Realty, Seacoast Bank, Orlando Health, Roque Pub, and Winn-Dixie. // Vendor and Sponsor opportunities still available.
