On June 12th, we celebrated the launch of 42 AvMed sponsored Morning Mile programs in Miami-Dade. 5-time NBA All Star and Heat player Tim Hardaway joined Olympic gold medalist Bershawn Jackson, UM Track & Field coach Amy Deem, her athletes, AvMed executives and over 400 children who warmed up then ran the Morning Mile together. After a few inspiring speeches, everyone was bursting with excitement to get up, and getting running towards their 100 mile challenge. For each child that runs 100 miles this summer, local business will donate $100 to the Miami-Dade Parks and Recreation Foundation. With the Morning Mile, goodness breeds goodness. It was a spectacular day and we couldn’t be more grateful that the Morning Mile has been embraced so passionately by both the adults and children in this community.
Thanks to Tim Hardaway and Harold Estime for this wonderful video. We love you both!
These programs were generously sponsored by AvMed Health plans.
