The 2nd Annual Marco Bridge Run is scheduled for February 14, 2010, at 7 a.m., at the Greater Marco YMCA, 101 Sandhill, Marco Island.
A group of professional business people on Marco Island recognized the need for a high-level fitness event as a fundraiser. The recipient of the proceeds is the Marco Island YMCA.
They YMCA was selected, in part, due to the, untimely, death of Carole Sbertoli, a Marco Island Realtor who was stricken and died pursuing her passion of health and fitness and had been an active supporter of the YMCA.
The race includes prize monies of $3,200 which helped to attract many high-caliber runners. The 10-mile race course is particularly scenic, beginning at the YMCA and looping through neighborhoods of Marco Island, including the gated community of Key Marco, crossing the Goodland Bridge, and returning back to the YMCA. There will be aid stations every 2 miles disbursing water and replacement drinks. For additional information or to register, visit www.Active.com or www.MarcoBridgeRun.com.
