Run. Walk. Give.

Every year hundreds of teams from local corporations, government agencies, schools, and non-profits gather to participate in one of Central Florida’s largest races of the year, the IOA Corporate 5k. It’s an event that not only creates a comradery among businesses and organizations alike but rallies around the causes of workplace wellness and helps to ease local food insecurity.

2019 was a landmark year. Leading up to the 25th Annual IOA Corporate 5k, Track Shack set a goal of raising 125,000 meals to help feed our neighbors in need. With the help of our incredible community, that goal was absolutely blown out of the water! Over 154,000 meals (and counting!) have been raised to help children, families, and seniors in our community who need it most. We can’t thank you all enough for your generosity.

We’d like to give a very special shout-out to the Top Contributing Teams!

  • 40,000 Meals – Greenspoon Marder
  • 14,000 Meals – Brooks Running
  • 12,000 Meals – Insurance Office of America
  • 10,000 Meals – National Staffing Solutions

Way to go! We couldn’t have done this without you! Of course, a very special thank you to our friends at Track Shack as well for once again including Second Harvest Food Bank as one of the beneficiaries of the race. We are so lucky to have such a caring community partner that continues to support our neighbors in need year after year.

Thank you again! We can’t wait to see you all next year as we continue to outrun hunger!
