Name: 2nd Annual MLK5K and Divine Nine 5K Challenge
Date: January 21, 2023
Time: 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM EST
Event Description:

All of South Florida is invited to join us for our second annual race celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In our inaugural year, 2022, a diverse crowd of nearly 300 men, women, and children of all ages came together to chase Dr. King’s dream of equality, good health, and economic equity.  As was the case last year, this event has something for nearly everyone who can walk or run including kids races, 1-mile, 5k, and 10k races. Participants, sponsors, and exhibitors will be once again joining forces to share their passions for unity, improved health outcomes, and support for small local minority-owned businesses.
A portion of proceeds from this event will be used to offset the costs for participants looking to improve their health, but are not able to cover the full costs of registration.  Net proceeds also help provide educational programs as well as other resources to small minority-owned businesses in Palm Beach County through the efforts of the volunteers of two nonprofit organizations, the Black Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County and the Equity Entrepreneur Center.  

Calling all Greeks!!  Fraternities and sororities are invited to join us again this year to compete for trophies exclusively for you. The fraternity and sorority with the most number of registered members will each earn a coveted trophy which they will have to defend at next year's event.  Fraternities and sororities will have their own unique promo codes which will direct a portion of the proceeds to college scholarships administered through National Pan-Hellenic Council of Palm Beach County. Come out and represent your organization, and help send and keep students in college.
