Youfit’s Virtual 5K Fights for Childhood Illness

Youfit Health Clubs is the proud Green Level Sponsor and the Official Vendor Village Sponsor for the 6th Annual Miami Children’s Health Foundation’s Run/Walk.  In addition to sponsoring Coral Gables event on September 17th, 2016, Youfit Health Clubs is also hosting the first ever live-streamed Virtual 5K at over 100 locations across the country to increase support for the Miami Children’s Health Foundation.

At the Coral Gables run/walk event, Youfit invites all race participants to a Fantasy Photo Booth to capture a moment with the artful imagination of a child from Miami Children’s Health Foundation.

The photo backdrops were designed with the help of the children from the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital which is supported by the Miami Children’s Health Foundation. After snapping a photo, participants will receive a physical photo and also a shareable image for their social channels.

In the first virtual fundraiser of its kind, participants will virtually experience the 5K via streaming technology on tablets and a custom event app. With the tap of a button, participants can switch between the race stream and a live-updated leader board, showcasing their performance relative to Virtual 5k participants across the country.

Clubs will be transformed to provide a true 5K atmosphere, complete with a pre-race group stretch, a cheering section and running bibs for all participants. These bibs will feature a pediatric patient supported by the Miami Children’s Health Foundation.

Clubs will open at 7 AM for the 7:30 AM event. Participants are encouraged to share their photos from the event using #YoufitVirtual5K.
