Miracles In The Milky Way

Miracles In The Milky Way

Dance Marathon at UF’s annual FT5K is a 5K race benefitting UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network. In its fourth year, the FT5K will bring together students and Gainesville community members, alike. This year, DM at UF is taking the race out of this world with the theme of Miracles in the Milky Way.

The galactical race will take place on Sunday, February 19, 2017. Check-ins will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. in the UF Commuter Lot, and the race will begin at 9:30 a.m. A post-race runner's celebration will follow the race, ending around 11:30 a.m. The celebration will include: race awards, music, games, sponsor giveaways, a costume contest, and a photo booth.
