Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort will be the backdrop for the annual Sandestin Foundation for Kids Gameday 5K Saturday, Nov. 11. The event is designed for all and will feature a one-mile fun run for children 12 and younger and a 5K.
Sandestin invites running enthusiasts to enjoy great weather and scenic surroundings. Participants will be able to soak in views of the beautiful 2,400-acre resort including the Choctawhatchee Bay, pristine golf courses, ponds, nature and much more.
The event benefits Sandestin Foundation for Kids, an organization that allows for funds to be gifted to needy children and families quickly in the event of a tragedy. Sandestin Foundation for Kids’ goal is to provide support immediately, when it is needed most to children throughout the community and abroad.
