DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Youfit Health Clubs is thrilled to be the official gym sponsor of the 5th annual Miami Children's Health Foundation 5K Run/Walk. The 5K, which raises money for children and families at the Nicklaus Children's Hospital, will start at Coral Gables City Hall on September 19, 2015, at 7:30 a.m.  

30 minutes before the run, participants can warm up with a mixture of Zumba dance moves and dynamic stretching led by Youfit. In their participant package, runners will receive Youfit sunglasses and a free pass to any Youfit location. The top-10 race winners will receive one-year Youfit Lime Card memberships that grant them access to all Youfit locations, YouGX® group exercise classes and unlimited guest privileges. 

Youfit founder Rick Berks said he is excited to give back to the Miami-Dade community, where Youfit has 25 clubs open.

"We have come to know and love this community. It's important for us to show our support of the research done by the Nicklaus Children's Hospital and raise money for happier, healthier kids," said Berks. "We can't wait to see all the families and kids running and walking for a great cause. We hope everyone will join the Youfit warmup before the 5K."

Adults can sign up for the 5K for $30 until September 11. Kids ages 2–9 can run in their own race at 8:30 a.m. for $10.
