Apples are healthy, and so are we. Fitness and health are important initiatives at Appleton. Yesterday, (April 18th, 2013), the Appleton Creative team put on their running shoes, workout gear, and competitive spirit to participate in Track Shack’s Corporate 5k. 16,000 professionals in 690 teams participated in the event and each one of them witnessed our fitness.

The three-mile plus route went through the downtown Orlando – Lake Eola area. Many spectators came to cheer on the runners in high spirits. We want to give a special thanks to Nicki Drumb for our “Go Appleton” sign at mile one!

Mayor Buddy Dyer came to support and inspire the crowd before the start horn was blasted. The 5K was especially moving, considering the tragedy in Boston just earlier this week. All participants shared a moment of silence for the victims and ran harder in their honor. Everyone was asked to put their hands over their hearts as they crossed the finish line in remembrance of the Boston runners who were unable to celebrate the victory. A portion of the proceeds went to The One Fund Boston to support the victims and the city. If you would like to donate to the charity, the link can be found here.

At Appleton, we realize that anything is truly possible with determination. And, apples are indeed very healthy.
