2nd Annual Race Adds Charity, Celebrities
The 2017 Par4Miler race at the Valspar Championship has joined with two local organizations to help others. HSN Cares is a named sponsor, and proceeds from the race will benefit the Moffitt Cancer Center. HSN Cares is the philanthropic arm of St. Petersburg's Home Shopping Network. Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute is a nonprofit cancer treatment and research center in Tampa.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, Ronde Barber, ran the inaugural race in 2016. This year Ronde returns with his twin brother, Tiki, a former running back for the New York Giants. Ronde ran 4 miles in 32:34 last year. Can you run his pace? Can Tiki?
