An avid runner, Taylor & Mathis Senior Property Manager Peter Romero began the event seven years ago as part of a tenant relations program geared towards tenants in the park to boost individual and corporate morale. In that time it has grown to include 2,000+ participants with over $168,000 donated to charity. Produced by TeamFootWorks the race attracts a diverse array of participants.
“We had great weather and an incredible group of participants,” according to Romero. “The highlight of the race was the glow themed after-party featuring Hora Loca . The DJ and dancers kept the party going with black lights, giveaways, special lighting, and more.”
