Inaugural 5K Run/Walk will raise money for Children’s Hospital of SWFL

By Staff | Oct 4, 2011

The Club at Renaissance, located off Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers just west of I-75, will host its first ever 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, Oct. 23 on the inspiring 18-hole championship golf course.

Staying close to the Worthington Group’s guiding principles of giving back to the community, The Club at Renaissance 5K Run/Walk will benefit The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. The event will contribute to the ongoing effort of the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation to construct the new Children’s Hospital adjacent to Health Park Medical Center. The new nearly 400,000-square-foot facility will house 148 beds/suites. It will consolidate all medical and ancillary specialty services required to help the most critically ill or injured children and their families.

The Children’s Hospital is the only local institution certified by NACHRI (National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions) to treat children with critical illnesses and catastrophic injuries. The new Children’s Hospital will provide a priceless asset to the Southwest Florida community, parents, and families as they will be close to home during the most challenging times.

On the day of the race, parking and registration will be located at the clubhouse between 6:30 and 7:15 a.m. The race will start at 7:30 a.m., and the first 250 participants receive t-shirts as a memento of an unforgettable event. At the end of the race, participants will be greeted with refreshments and an awards ceremony.
