The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run will take place on Thursday April 3 starting at 6:45 p.m. at Huizenga Plaza in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
The event, which is a 3.1 mile run and walk is often referred to as the largest Fort Lauderdale office party. Companies large and small participate as teams. Companies and organizations will encourage their personnel to participate. Often they will have a picnic dinner before and after the run. The idea is to have a team building event and get some exercise.
"I love this event. We all get together and have fun," said Cynthia Rowland, who works in an office.
"I can't wait for this event. I love to run and I really love the fun we have after the run," said Maria Gomez, who works in a hotel.
"This is really a good event for our company. Everyone comes together to socialize and have fun. We also get to have some exercise," said Richard Smiley, a restaurant manager.
