LAS VEGAS (January 23, 2020) The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation (TFMJF) will be making its annual return to Sunset Park in Las Vegas, home of the past 4 Fight-4-Fitness events. The 5th Annual Fight-4-Fitness: 80’s & 90’s themed 5K Race, 1K Family Fun Run/Walk, and Community Day is scheduled for Sunday, March 8th.
Runners and families will unite with The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation for a day filled with spreading health & fitness awareness in a fun and interactive environment. The Las Vegas community and surrounding area residents are invited to join us for races, games, music, and live entertainment in a family friendly environment. The festivities will commence with a 5K race, then a 1K Family Fun Run/Walk (all ages are welcomed), followed by Community Day, serving as the last event of the day. The races will be followed by an awards ceremony that will honor and celebrate the top 5K race participants in each age category and the children who participated in the 1K Family Fun Run.
The 5th Annual Fight-4-Fitness will feature appearances by Mayweather Promotions’ fighters, local healthy food vendors, lifestyle & fitness vendors, giveaways and raffles by Mayweather Promotions and event sponsors, a TMT & Mayweather Sports merchandise booth, kid’s scavenger hunt, and physical activities and life-sized games, PLUS MUCH MORE! Boxing personality and announcer, “Rambling Ralph” Velez, will return to host this year’s event.
“I have watched this event blossom into something impactful and special for the community,” says Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. I commend the team that works behind the scenes to plan this great event, as well as all the supporters and volunteers that contribute to making it possible. It’s filled with fun from start to end and I encourage everyone to come see what this event is all about. It’s truly for everyone. If you’re in Las Vegas and haven’t made to Fight-4-Fitness, you’re missing out!”
“To see this event, grow year after year really shows us that there’s a need for us to continue promoting health & fitness for our community,” says TFMJF President Nicole Craig. Our goal is to provide a home where everyone feels safe and confident in tackling their health & fitness goals, while promoting health conscious lifestyle changes. We look forward to this event surpassing the previous events in support and attendees, and will see everyone on March 8 at Sunset Park.”
A portion of the net proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to USATF track/running teams/clubs to help offset costs associated with the sport. The top 5 teams that have the highest registration participation will be presented with a cash prize for their teams. All participating teams will receive a donation of 25% of their respective team’s registration proceeds. To date, The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation has been able to reward 9 youth track/running teams since 2017 to help their athletes offset costs associated with the sport. We were also fortunate to extend our support to Forgotten Not Gone, whose sole mission is to combat veteran suicide by providing practical resources to fulfill the needs of our Veterans, and the Bill and Lillie Heinrich YMCA’s youth fitness programs as additional beneficiaries from our last event
