Anyone can participate! This is a family friendly event, open to the public, and all ages.
You can run, walk, skip, shuffle, saunter or dance your way through our 5K course.  

Is It Just a 5K? 
Not at all, it’s an event full of support, faith, hope and overall joy! We will be starting off with a pre-race warm up and a post-race cool down. Family friendly games and our sponsors will be onsite. We are excited to host and see you there!

What Does the 5K Benefit?
The Alexander Trujillo (AlexTru) Foundation annual 5k event benefits the AlexTru Grant Funds. The grant fund was created to assist young adults and their caregivers of ages 18-34 years who are undergoing cancer treatments in Florida.

Who is Alexander Trujillo?
Alexander Trujillo was a 21-year-old who went through a year of Acute Lymphocyte Leukemia treatment at Sylvester Cancer Center in 2018. He was a kindhearted young man who helped many people from a young age. He aspired to finish his college education and become a history professor at a local university educating young adults. While in treatment, he planned on opening this foundation to provide support, faith and assistance to all young adults who were encountered with cancer as an obstacle in their life. When Alex passed away, his family created this fund to honor his memory as a dedicated young man who made it a priority helping others on a regular basis.
