Luke’s 5K Challenge

CANINE COMPANIONS FOR INDEPENDENCE

We are committed to supporting Canine Companions for Independence – a non-profit organization that has been enhancing the lives of people with disabilities since 1975. By providing highly trained assistance dogs free of charge to the recipient, Canine Companions has changed countless lives. It’s a powerful program that leads to greater independence and confidence – as well as friendship. Luke’s 5K Challenge is NextHome’s way of showing our support and driving donations to this great cause. Regardless of whether you jog, run, skip, or walk your way to the finish line, 100% of your registration fees will go to Canine Companions. It’s an easy way to donate $35 to this wonderful organization and have fun in the Florida sun in the meantime!

LUKE'S 5K CHALLENGE

Now that you know our WHY… Let’s talk details!

Our “challenge” was named just so because it will challenge your physical abilities on the day of the fun run, as well as your fundraising skills in the weeks prior to the event. We will be announcing a way for you to show us your competitive side and get the support of your colleagues, friends and family behind your fundraising efforts. More details coming soon!

  • When: Wednesday, April 1st | 6:30 am - 8:00 am (no, the early start time is not an April Fools joke!)
  • Start: Loews Sapphire Falls Resort (our beautiful host hotel)
  • Distance: 5 km | 3.1 mi
  • End: You guessed it... we're looping back to the host hotel
  • Goodies: Race t-shirt, race number, and we might throw in a medal for our fastest runners
  • Registration: Luke's 5K Challenge ticket is required to participate (separate ticket from your conference admission). Remember, the cost of your entire ticket ($35) will be donated to Canine Companions for Independence.
