The race will take place on Thursday, June 22 at 6 p.m. and challenges local businesses and corporations to rise to the occasion to get fit and give back to the local surrounding communities.

Winning Events Group can be found across the country hosting 5K races, obstacle races, tournaments, live shows and boxing and has raised over $850,000 for various charities since their inception in 2013.

“We strongly believe every kid deserves the opportunity to benefit from the many benefits an active & healthy lifestyle offers,” began WEG President and Founder Elvi Guzman.

“We are so excited to bring back this event and challenge corporate leaders to get everyone together and be fit!”

Guzman’s first event in 2013 was a City Challenge, a breast-cancer research fundraiser in honor of his sister.

This year, City Challenge Youth Foundation was named the beneficiary and corporations will be running to support the underserved children that the foundation serves.
