Our first April is Alcohol Awareness 5k Walk/Run was held at the St. Cloud Lakefront on April 14, 2018. It was a beautiful day with clear skies and lots of sunshine. The 5k Walk/Run was held in partnership with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) to raise awareness for alcohol abuse and that recovery is possible. Many of our sponsors and partners, including St. Cloud Regional Medical Center, Kissimmee Police Department, the Health Insurance Store, and DaVita Medical Group, were at the event sharing information with walk/run participants.
Participants began the walk/run at the Veteran's Pavilion on Massachusetts Avenue and headed west towards Columbia Avenue, before making their way around the paved path to head east towards Maryland Avenue and ending the 5k trail by returning to the Veteran's Pavilion.
