Support Police Athletic League - Register for Grand Prix 5K!
Runners and walkers have the unique opportunity to “race on track” during the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding weekend for the first time since 2019. The Wellcare Ambetter Health 5K on the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Track is set for Thursday, March 2, 2023, and online registration is now open at gpstpete5k.com.
Wellcare, a leading Medicare plan based in Tampa, Fla., and Ambetter Health, the top marketplace health insurer in the United States, are teaming up as the title sponsors of this community event run on portions of the 1.8-mile Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding street circuit.
The Police Athletic League (PAL) of St. Petersburg will be the beneficiary from the 5K which will support its many programs positively impacting local children and teenagers. PAL will receive 100 percent of the proceeds from all 5K registrations.
“The Police Athletic League of St. Petersburg is excited to see this impactful event return to our city, and we are extremely grateful to our partners for their continued support," said Heather Robb, executive director, Police Athletic League of St. Petersburg. “Since 2016, contributions from the Firestone Grand Prix and proceeds from the 5K have surpassed $210,000, which helps PAL provide enriching activities and experiences to at-risk children living in our community. We can't wait to be a part of the festivities in March!"
"After a four-year hiatus, our team is thrilled to announce the return of the Wellcare Ambetter Health 5K on the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Track. We are grateful to Wellcare and Ambetter Health in helping us bring back this exciting community event that kicks off the race weekend,” said Kim Green, co-owner, chairman and CEO of Green Savoree Racing Promotions, organizers of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding. “We look forward to again hosting over a thousand walkers and runners on the track as we raise money for a great local organization in PAL."
