Get ready to celebrate on Oct. 20 at Zoo Miami. The second annual Miami-Dade County WellnessWorks 5K "Incredible" Family Fun Day begins bright and early for serious runners as well as all others ready to enjoy a stroll through Zoo Miami as the animals come awake.

Stretch out at the starting line, get ready, set and go at 7 a.m. for the fun run. Refreshments will be available at Camel Corner to soothe the thirsty and reenergize participates. The Awards Ceremony takes place at 8:15 a.m. on stage.

There's more to do and see. Yoga for all levels begins at 8:45 a.m. The first 50 participants receive a WellnessWorks Yoga Mat too. Don't worry if you miss the early class either, there will be another at 11:30 a.m. You can also enjoy a chair massage throughout the day.

Stop by the Capture POD unit to share your story about how the WellnessWorks Program has helped you. The short video will be a memento of the day's event too. Making healthier choices can be fun. 

Visit the community groups, shop merchants and meet others set-up to engage you with great information, contests, giveaways and surprises.

  • ICMA-RA's Realize Retirement Adventure Tour vehicle will offer an escape game.
  • The Library's Techno Bus and Jackson Hospital Mobile Bus will amaze you.
  • Come kick off your shoes and try out the Bounce Zone.

Family Fun…
Kids will enjoy rock climbing, a super hero bounce house and face painting. Together, kids and their parents can try the trampoline and visit the pumpkin patch. Snap a photo and share the "incredible."

Be sure to stop by the Fire Rescue truck, have your child finger printed for safety by Corrections.

Bring your old showerhead for an exchange from the WASD Efficiency team. They will also have high efficiency light bulbs to trade for old inefficient ones.

Get Election Ready! Learn about Mosquito Control and find out more about other County initiatives.

Get something to eat at one of the food trucks or food vendor stations. There will be a variety of options. Vegans will be especially happy with the yummy gourmet fare available from Reggae Beets.

At 11 a.m. County department teams compete in a tricycle relay. The teams will be competing for bragging rights and fun prizes.
