The event that combines family, fitness and fun, while supporting Winter Haven Hospital Foundation’s Fund for Women and Children, returns to LEGOLAND Florida Resort on April 11. Formerly known as the Citrus Classic for more than twenty years, the Brick Dash 5K Run and Fun Walk invitesrunners and walkers of all ages to wind their way through the family theme park that’s built for kids. New this year, kids will have an event that’s all their own. The Kids Half Mile is specially designed for participants 12 and under.
“We continue to be impressed with how this event grows every year,” said David Johnson, New Business Development Director for Merlin Magic Making and Merlin Entertainments and Winter Haven Hospital Foundation trustee. “The name change ties directly into the personality of LEGOLAND Florida Resort: playful, fun and kid-oriented.”
Specially designed LEGO trophies will be given to first, second and third place runners of each age category, as well as to first place finishers for overall male and female, and for masters male and female. Every participant will receive a race finisher prize, finisher medal and a t-shirt.
“We are grateful to our LEGOLAND partners. We are thrilled to continue our partnership and keep this wonderful Winter Haven event fresh and fun for all while contributing to local, quality health care,” said Winter Haven Hospital Foundation President Joel Thomas.
