Rock the Run Rings Up $10,000 For Charity

Boca Raton Life Time Athletic Club’s Rock the Run 5K was a huge success, raising nearly $10,000 for Children’s Place at Home Safe Boca Raton and the Life Time Fitness Foundation!

The race started off with a bang (literally) at 8am with 700 runners racing for the finish line. Even Bahram Akradi, the CEO of Life Time Fitness (pictured below with Donna Everhart, General Manager of BRLTA), tested his endurance on the course. Just when we were about to drop, live acoustic musicians like Amber Leigh kept us going till the finish line.

Afterwards, everyone, including NBA star Samuel Dalembert of the Philadelphia 76ers (pictured below), headed to the Life Time pool for an after party, complete with swag bags and a gourmet breakfast provided by the Delray Beach Marriott.

Congrats to our marathon winners – The overall male open winner for Rock the Run was Jordan Zwick, 23, with a time of 15:46.6!

Second place went to Jon Volpi, 26, with a time of 15:48.7, and Tim Walker, 26, won third place with a time of 17:19.3.
