Another 5K race coming through the Grove
The streets will be closed this time on Sunday May 18, as runners come through Coconut Grove as part of Run for Relief, a 5K walk/run raising funds for Haiti.
As you know, Haiti was hit by a severe earthquake four years ago, and is still suffering from a cholera outbreak. Though the country is still suffering tremendously, the cause has lost the attention of the public and is slipping under the radar. They're hoping to bring the community together in support of this cause that is only 681 miles off our shore with this event.
All profits will be given to Project Medishare for Haiti, a 501(c)3 non-profit registered in the State of Florida. This organization was founded in 1994 by Doctors Barth Green and Arthur Fournier from the University of Miami School Of Medicine. Since then, the organization has opened a hospital and continues to serve the people of Haiti in their medical needs.
The good news for traffic flow is that the race will begin at 7:30 am and has an estimated finish of 8:45 am. The Southbound lanes on South Bayshore Drive, McFarlane and Main Highway will remain open at all times. All traffic flow will be managed as directed by the City of Miami Police Department. The flow of traffic will be guided through gaps between runner packs.
