MedPro International Explorers Lace Up for Turkey Trot 2023

MedPro International Explorers Lace Up for Turkey Trot 2023

MedPro International Explorers were up bright and early Thanksgiving morning to join runners on Fort Lauderdale Beach for a time-honored tradition combining fitness, festivity, and philanthropy—the 12th Annual Memorial Cardiac & Vascular Institute Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot. Twelve explorers arrived at Las Olas Oceanside Park in Fort Lauderdale at sunrise to join the more than 3,000 runners, joggers, and walkers for the 5k race along A1A.

Participants enjoyed a gorgeous view of Fort Lauderdale Beach while raising money for a good cause. Proceeds from the event benefitted Leadership Broward Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County, whose programs help strengthen the local community in large and small ways. The first 3000 to cross the finish line were awarded some serious hardware for their efforts.

Explorers, who were spotted before and after the race posing for pictures and sharing a laugh with Tom the Turkey, reported having a great time at the event.

Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute was the event title sponsor and Chief of Adult Cardiac Medical Services Dr. Ralph Levy spoke before the race. Memorial Cardiac & Vascular Institute, part of the Memorial Healthcare System, is nationally recognized for its expertise in diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for a range of complex heart and vascular conditions.

Event volunteers set up tables, cut bananas and oranges, and handed out medals and awards, among other various tasks. The Turkey Trot was a great opportunity for Explorers to enjoy the beautiful South Florida weather and each other’s company before heading out to healthcare facilities across the country.
