Run, walk, wheel-athon returns to streets of St. Pete Registration is now open for The Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation's fourth annual Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg 5K Run, Walk 'N Wheel-a-thon.
This event will take place at 7 p.m. on March 22, as part of festivities surrounding the IZOD IndyCar Series Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Trim Nutrition, an INDYCAR promotional partner and a leader in wellness supplements and sustained energy products, is the presenting sponsor of this event.
"Supporting the community is something that is important to us," said Tim Ramsberger, Vice President and General Manager of the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. "We are happy to open up our race track for this fundraiser; it is a wonderful part of what will be an exciting weekend. We encourage everyone in the Tampa Bay area to sign up and show their support."
All proceeds will benefit SSPF and the PBA/Suncoast Law Enforcement Charities to raise money for paralysis/spinal cord injury research.
Participants will have the opportunity to run, walk or wheel their way around the 1.81-mile street circuit that the stars of the IZOD IndyCar Series will be competing on later that weekend.
"We're pleased with the success that lets us produce the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg 5K Run, Walk 'N Wheelathon for the fourth year in a row," said Ida Cahill, President and CEO of SSPF. "This event provides the community with the unique opportunity to experience the thrill of the Honda Grand Prix from the perspective of the IndyCar Series drivers while at the same time raising money and awareness for a great cause."
