Serena Williams will be hosting her second annual Serena Williams Live Ultimate Run this December!
According to Look To The Stars, the event, which will be held in South Beach on Sunday, December 13, 2015, will feature three parts: a quarter Marathon (6.55 miles), 5K Run/Walk and Ultimate Kids Dash. The run will bring together people of all ages and ability to support the Serena Williams Fund.
“I continue to be honored by the rare opportunity I have been given, and truly understand the importance of using my platform to assist others,” Serena said. “The Serena Williams Fund is excited for the opportunity to partner with Live Ultimate to host a run. We get people outdoors and active in beautiful South Beach and most importantly raise funds for two very important causes: aiding individuals and communities who have been affected by senseless violence and making a quality education accessible to deserving youth around the world. Come out and join us!”
“Serena is the absolute personification of the philosophy of living ultimate,” addsed Marc Wachter, CEO of Live Ultimate, LLC and Board Member of Driving Force Giving Circle (DFGC). “Not only does she excel in her professional and personal life, but she dedicates her time and energy to giving back to those in need. She should be recognized as much for her work off the courts as for her achievements on them. We are honored to work with her to raise funds for her very important causes.”
Serena’s sister Venus, along with other runners and personalities, will come out in support of the event. The run will be the culmination of a weekend-long series of events, including the Ultimate Evening charity gala and silent auction on Friday, December 11, and a health and wellness expo on Saturday, December 12.
