Are you looking for a great charity race to do this fall? You should check out the Quack Attack on Poverty 5k!
The Quack Attack on Poverty 5k presented by the Orlando Solar Bears is a professionally-timed race for runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities. This unique event requires participants to wear an inflatable duck-shaped pool float through a 3.1 mile course featuring bubble, squirt gun and quack zones. This event is fun for the entire family –runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate and strollers are allowed! And yes, the route has been certified by USA Track & Field. The course has been officially measured at 3.1 miles using the shortest distance traveled.
The goal of this community-based event is to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit Community Food & Outreach Center whose mission is to inspire and empower people living in poverty to lift themselves and their families to economic self-sufficiency.
The second annual Quack Attack on Poverty 5k is on Saturday, September 26 in Baldwin Park. The race starts on New Broad Street, just SE of the fountain at Harbor Park at Lake Baldwin. Most of the first mile takes place on closed public streets (New Broad Street—>Common Way—>Lakemont Avenue) and then goes on to the path at Lake Baldwin for the remainder, finishing adjacent to the start line. It is a smooth and scenic route.
