Not sure of the benefits of attending the 2019 HR Florida State Conference?

Let the HR Florida team show you why you can't miss out!  



2nd Annual HR Florida 5K
6:00 PM   

We all remember it was hot last year, so we took your advice and will be hosting this event starting at 6pm on Sunday August 25, 2019. This year’s event will take place at the beautiful Falcon’s Fire Golf Course located just minutes away from the Gaylord Palms (transportation will be provided).

This is an easy, fun event where participants can walk or run.

(FYI: 5K = 3.1 miles. If you walk a 20-minute mile, it will take just over 1 hour to complete) through a great golf course with amazing scenery.

We encourage you, your friends, and family to participate and fund-raise. (You do not have to attend the conference to participate in the 5K or to donate to this year's charity, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention).
