Bluegreen’s Orlando, Fla., resort, The Fountains, is a prime location for owners to stay while attending the 16th Annual Celebration Health Founder’s Day 10K and 5K races, Nov. 13, 2011, at 7:30 a.m.

Bluegreen Vacations, a leading provider of Colorful Places to Play, today announced its Orlando, Fla., resort, The Fountains, is a prime location for owners to stay while attending the 16th Annual Celebration Health Founder’s Day 10K and 5K races, Nov. 13, 2011, at 7:30 a.m.

By taking time to participate in the Annual Celebration Health Founder’s Day 10K and 5K races, Bluegreen owners can add to their vacation experiences by getting out and running for a great cause. Owners can make their way to the Florida Hospital Celebration for the start of both the 10K and 5K races. If participants want an added challenge, they can run both races and receive a special medal rewarding them for the completion of what is known as the “distance dare event”. In addition to the 10K and 5K races there will also be a Healthy 100 Kids’ Run, where children can participate and receive a ribbon of their own. Racers will also have the opportunity to visit with healthcare professionals for a free interactive health screening at the Sports Medicine Pavilion. Proceeds of the event will benefit the Track Shack Foundation, a local foundation that benefits various charitable organizations throughout Central Florida.

The Fountains provides the perfect retreat after a day of running for a great cause. The resort’s two-bedroom villas are richly appointed with all the comforts of home—and then some. Most feature a screened balcony overlooking the property lake, a fully-equipped kitchen, a garden tub, and a surround- sound stereo system. The resort’s main pool, Wakoola Springs, is a 75,000-square-foot tropical oasis with two twisting water slides, a zero-entry pool, interactive water fountains, two hot tubs, two bridges, and two fire circles for campfires providing owners the opportunity to unwind and get some R&R on their vacation experience.

“Although the Celebration Health Founder’s Day 10K and 5K races bring out competitiveness, it also brings everyone together for a great cause,” said David DeShaw, Regional Director for Bluegreen Corporation. “The Distance Dare Event is sure to provide a challenge to even the most fit race participants, and also make for a unique and memorable vacation story for our owners to bring back home with them. Our Bluegreen travel guides will be more than happy to help owners with the needed information.”
