Who wants to run for pancakes???

IMGI can certainly think of worse things to run for than pancakes, so lace up and meet me at the Celebration Fire Station on October 25th.

The Celebration Rotary Club has been putting on their Pancake Run & Health Fair for several years now, and it’s an event that always signals Fall for me. It usually coincides with the beginning of cooler temperatures and you get to run through a town that takes holiday decorating very seriously. We have a house that is completely converted into a Pirate Ship for the whole month of October here. Need I say more…

Once you complete your 5k or 10k race, they feed you pancakes. It’s amazing! There is also a Health Fair where you can take advantage of free services and be entered to win prizes such as free memberships to the Celebration Fitness Centre.  Plus best of all, this event raises much needed funds for New Beginnings, a non-profit organization that helps the homeless here in Central Florida. They can provide them food, shelter, clothing, professional counseling, job opportunities, and best of all, hope.  Just by getting in a workout that we all need anyways and then subsequently eating a bunch of pancakes, we can help New Beginnings make the holiday season better for those in need.
