Our Fundraising Efforts
About the Hansgiving Fun Run!
Hans and Laurie Huseby have spearheaded the growth of the local running scene in Miami since 1973. Through FootWorks, their efforts have led to initiatives such as assisting in the founding of the Miami Runners Club, producing races such as the Corporate Run series, and organizing Training Programs for marathons, half-marathons, and 5Ks.
Sadly, Hans passed away on Thanksgiving weekend in 2014. The following year, about 20 of us gathered on Thanksgiving morning to run in his honor. Since then, many more have joined us on SW 57th Court, also known as Hans Huseby Run, to help continue this tradition.
There is no fee to join the Fun Run. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, we only ask for a $10 donation to help support our running programs and events which spread fitness education and involve the community in physical activity.
The 3.8 mile run/walk is an untimed Fun Run. There are no bibs or awards.
The run will begins at 7:00am on Hans Huseby Run (57th Ct. on Sunset Dr. on the west side of FootWorks). Parking is free until 9:00am.
Laurie will share some words with everyone before the run and we will all take a group photo in front of the Hans Huseby Run sign. Wear your TeamFootWorks shirt!
Mimosas will be served after the run (while supplies last).
