About this Race
With The Cowford Chophouse officially open, we are thrilled to be hosting the second annual MOO-VE IT 5K on March 3, 2018. This family friendly event will consist of a one-mile fun run to begin at 9:30 a.m. and a 5K, which will start at 10 a.m. There will be a post-race block party on Bay and Ocean Streets, which will include music, beer, and food. Additionaly, we will be honoring our generous sponsors with a VIP rooftop brunch reception. Medals will be given to all finishers and an award ceremony will follow the race completion. Each participant will receive a race bag with specialty items from our sponsors.
Proceeds from the MOO-VE IT 5K will benefit the Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center in their work as the Northeast Florida direct service provider for the Open Doors Outreach Network. Open Doors is a public-private partnership administered by Voices for Florida which improves care, coordination and outcomes for commercially sexually exploited and trafficked children and young adults up to age 24. Together and alongside survivors, the Open Doors team works 24/7/365 to support each survivor’s well-being and connect them to appropriate resources to aid the recovery process. Funds raised will assist the organization in receiving a grant match for this program.
The Delores Weaver Policy Center and The Open Doors Outreach Network have many staff members who will be participating in the MOO-VE IT 5K. You have the unique opportunity to not only help the Cowford Chophouse raise funds for Open Doors, but to train bi-weekly for the 5K with a partner during the month leading up to race day. This will be an amazing opportunity to connect directly with members of the Open Doors Outreach Network and Policy Center while you support a great cause. If you are interested in completing the run with a partner from Open Doors, please mark your registration in the “I’d like to join the run club” portion of the registration form!
