South Florida Runners and Stanton Smiles are gearing up for the 2013 KIDS IN DISTRESS HERO 5K run in Fort Lauderdale. Raising awareness and money for Children in the South Florida Community.
The goal is to raise $200,000 to help feed thousands of children in South Florida. Fort Lauderdale Dentist Stanton Smiles and friends have raised over $ 1,440 for the Kids In Distress charity.
The race will take place on Thursday, May 2nd, 2013. The course will go through Downtown Fort Lauderdale beginning at Huizenga Park. Runners are encouraged to dress as a super hero and/or inspirational figure! To be in the spirit of the event Dr. Robert Stanton will fittingly dress up as the tooth fairy.
