Staff from eight Winter Park Consortium schools joined together with Winter Park Health Foundation staff to participate in IOA’s Corporate 5K on Thursday, April 7.  The event, nicknamed “Orlando’s largest office party,” is held exclusively for Florida’s corporate community; businesses and non-profit organizations form teams and participate in the IOA Corporate 5k for camaraderie, friendly competition and celebrating with co-workers.

Thanks to a mini grant from Healthy Central Florida, Florida Action for Healthy Kids joined forces with Healthy Kids Today to provide a discounted entry fee to almost 100 Winter Park Consortium school staff members.  Participants wore their school shirts to show their school spirit which spurred on a bit of friendly competition among them!

Healthy Kids Today partnered with Second Harvest’s Catering for Good Program to provide food for the participants.

It was a wonderful evening full of smiles and laughs and celebrating our local schools while working towards being a little healthier.
