The first annual Holiday – Season of Giving 5K run/walk will take place at Vista View Park in Davie on December 4th. The chipped timed 5K will run/walk on a flat and fast course within Vista View Park. Awards are provided for top 3 overall and age groups.
The race is dedicated to the life and giving of local hero Aden Perry. Aden lived life as a selfless and caring young man. On April 19, 2022, Aden gave the most selfless gift as he dove into a canal to save someone who had crashed in the canal.
As anyone who knows Aden, they understand his immediate reaction was to jump in and help someone he did not even know. Aden will forever be a hero; his legacy will continue through his foundation and this 5K.
Proceeds from the race will provide students with backpacks, school supplies, SAT tutoring and more. School supply donations will also be accepted at the race. The Aden Perry Foundation will provide educational tools to South Florida students. The foundation will provide free tutoring to students looking to improve test scores and ensure their success in life.
