The marathon marked the launch of NWS’s partnership with Baptist Health South Florida (BHSF), one of our community sponsors. 

Baptist Health CheerZone

BHSF hosted an official CheerZone in SoundScape Park, where five Brass Fellows performed two sets of music for over 25,000 runners who passed on 17th Street. BHSF also covered the three races’ registration costs for Team NWS.

BHSF’s Miami Cancer Institute is also a Platinum Sponsor of our 30th Anniversary Gala next month.
