Event Benefits Local At-Risk Youth

Motion for the Ocean Logo

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – The Third Annual Motion for the Ocean 5K Walk/Run is almost here!

The event is scheduled for  Sunday, April 26 – 7 a.m. registration, 8 a.m. start of the race. The event is being held at NSU’s Oceanographic Center, located within John U. Lloyd State Park in Hollywood (8000 N. Ocean Drive.)

The Motion for the Ocean is a fundraiser and community-building event organized and hosted by NSU’s Oceanographic Center Student Government Association (SGA) and student volunteers. The cost for participation in the race is $15 for early registration or $20 the day of the event.

All proceeds from the Motion for the Ocean 5k Run/Walk entry fees will be donated to AMIkids, a nationally recognized non-profit organization that works with at risk youth, giving them an opportunity to transform into responsible young adults. They offer kids a promising future through positive and motivating programs that inspire learning, leadership and personal growth. For those who would like to help but cannot make the event, additional donations can be made through NSU’s Oceanographic Center SGA.
