This race is a fundraiser for the Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation and all proceeds from this race are used to enhance environmental education programs offered at the Manatee Observation and Education Center, focusing on conservation and preservation of the Indian River Lagoon, an estuary of national significance, marine life within the lagoon, and the surrounding ecosystems.

This year, we are also offering a VIRTUAL option for our friends and family who can't be in Fort Pierce, FL on the day of the race. Before race day, we will mail you your bib and race Tech shirt. Post photos and videos of your run on our Manatee Center 5K Facebook Page, and rest assured that your run at home is helping to support environmental education for healthy ecosystems and manatees in the Indian River Lagoon.

Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization established to support and enhance environmental awareness, education, conservation, and stewardship of endangered species and natural resources fulfilling its mission through the Manatee Observation and Education Center.

As always, THANK YOU for your support and we look forward to seeing you on race day.
