Almost 7,000 people got together to participate in the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run in Fort Lauderdale on April 3.
The run is considered a large outdoor office party and many companies offer employees who participate food and drink. Some companies want their personnel to participate as part of an overall wellness program while others just want to have some fun.
"I love to run and this a fun event for our staff," said Deborah Mulligan, who manages a restaurant.
"I don't like running and I walked in this event. It is a good time. People get together and have some fun," said Roger Salinas, who manages an office.
"I look forward to this run every year. We all get together and have some fun and we get some exercise," said Kristina Branson.
