Activities for the runners and walkers include a stretch session by Pilates in the Grove. A bounce house, clowns and music will provide entertainment for children. The Arthur & Polly Mays Conservatory of the Arts (http://apmays.dadeschools.net/index.htm) marching band and auxiliary team, fresh off their Junior Orange Bowl Parade act, will kick off the event. A health fair with blood pressure testing and more also is planned.

The organization helps the homeless put their lives back together with a comprehensive support program that includes emergency shelter, meals, health and dental care, day care, job training, job placement, and assistance with securing housing.
