5K Team Miami Plus 2015: They walked, jogged, ran and finished

By Cassie Wilson, assistant director, employee wellness

Congrats Team Miami Plus 2015. You successfully completed the Red Brick 5K.
Miami Benefits & Wellness worked with the Coalition for a Healthy Oxford to open our Team Miami 5K training program to the community and major Oxford employers in 2015. This new partnership brought participants together with the common goal to get ready, get moving and get motivated to complete the 3.1-mile Red Brick run/walk.

This health journey started in the cold of February, but fast-forward to race day on April 26, and it was all smiles and sunshine. Over 60 Team Miami Plus participants crossed the Recreational Sports Red Brick 5K finish line.

Race results included nine medal winners from Team Miami Plus, including the top female finisher: Julie Cousins, professor of kinesiology and health; and the top male finisher: 70+ Miami alumnus and community member, Tom Uhl; and many others in between.

Seeing everyone cross the finish line was such an inspiration. The Red Brick 5K and Team Miami Plus are foundational for supporting a healthy and thriving community.
