Event Information

Event Info:

The 4th Annual emb(race)® on Sunday, February 23, 2014 will bring together people with and without disabilities for a morning of racing, walking and fun. Emb(race)® is a message of hope – and a historic day that celebrates everyone’s abilities. It's an opportunity for friends, family and neighbors to come together and learn side by side about diversity in our community.

The event will be held on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL. The event will feature a 5K, 10K and one-mile family walk and include people of all ages and abilities. Whether participants run, walk, stroll, roll, use a wheelchair or hand cycle, everyone can enter. There will be games for children, live music, food, prizes, awards and much more!

The inaugural event attracted over 1,200 participants and volunteers and included several honored guests including U.S. Congressman James Langevin (RI), who serves on the Armed Services Committee, House Permanent Select Committee on intelligence and the only member of Congress who is a quadriplegic. He was joined by U.S. Congressman Ted Deutch (FL), U.S. Congressman Allen West (FL), Commissioner Steve Abrams, Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel and numerous local, regional and Florida State Representatives.

All event proceeds will benefit Stand Among Friends' programs and services that support individuals with disabilities.
