Are you a runner? Do you want to be a runner? How about a walker?
Ok better question: Do YOU want to walk or run for Yitzi Hurwitz?
This will be the 8th year TEAM RUN4YITZI is participating in the Miami Half Marathon, happening on March 5, 2023. This year we will be raising our goal to $250,000.00 to help the family with their daily medical/living costs.
ALS is not only a cruel disease and the medical equipment and care needed on a daily basis is financially exorbitant. And don’t forget this is a wonderful family with 7 beautiful children!
If you are interested in running or walking with a team full of heart, determination and passion, please send us a message.
The start line
The 13.1 course starts out on the famous Ocean Dr. and makes its way towards the Julia Tuttle Cswy past some magnificent residences of Miami Beach. After crossing the causeway into Miami, runners enter the up-and-coming Wynwood area where you will be able to see well-known graffiti artwork throughout this warehouse district. Runners next leave the city of Miami and return to Miami Beach across the MacArthur Cswy where you’ll catch a glimpse of cruise ships at dock. Upon entering South Beach, the course will run on the new South Point Park Baywalk along the waters of Biscayne Bay with spectacular views of Fisher Island.
As you approach the finish via Ocean Drive, the course turns onto beach side serpentine where the finish line welcomes you. Finally, enjoy a grand post-race beach party on South Beach in Lummus Park. You earned it!
