Nearly 1,500 runners, walkers and children in strollers took part in the Run for All Children on May 19, completing the chip-timed 10K, 5K or 1-mile fun run. The fifth annual run raised more than $75,000 to help patients and families who come from across Florida and around the country to receive specialized, high-quality care at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
The annual event was founded by Brian Powers, a grateful parent who wanted to make a difference in the lives of children and families.
“For the fifth consecutive year, we have set another overall attendance record,” Powers says. “I want to thank everyone who made this race a tremendous success—attendees, sponsors and volunteers.”
Drawing runners of all ages and fitness levels from Tampa Bay and beyond, the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Foundation expects this family friendly race to continue to grow and benefit more children and families in the years to come.
“It is exciting to see the evolution and growth,” says Jenine Rabin, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Foundation executive vice president. “Brian Powers and the Seminole Largo Branch of the Guild brought this race to life. Seeing it thrive and raising $75,000 for our kids and families is an incredible accomplishment.”
