The Viera/Suntree community will come together Saturday, Jan. 9 to celebrate the history-making season of the Viera Hawks football team.
The Color Me Healthy 5K and Family Fitness Festival in Suntree will be a fun opportunity for anyone who wants to turn over a new leaf for the New Year and be the best they can be at any age, and find out just how fun fitness can be. The day kicks off at 8 a.m. with the 5K Run/Walk followed by a 9 a.m. Fun Run and activities through 1 p.m.
The 11 a.m. Hawks celebration will feature remarks by VHS athletic director Chris Gallagher.
“Families in the Viera/Suntree area invest in their own education, invest in their own careers, and they love their children to pieces,” Gallagher said. “So they turn around and invest their time, talent and other resources into their child’s education, and athletics is a very important part of that.”
Community members can purchase healthy brunch and lunch items from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to benefit the Suntree-headquartered Bluewater Foundation and its efforts to strengthen families.
“This charity event is to support families who take in, foster or adopt children, so we all can play a role in helping this happen,” said Gallagher, who will run in the 5K, “whether it be running in the 5K or purchasing lunch, making a contribution of any sort, or ultimately being inspired to take on the mission of being one of those families who give of themselves by providing a strong, nurturing home.”
