Laurie and the late Hans Huseby, who together have been producing running events in South Florida for the past 40+ years, provide encouragement and support to beginners and running elite alike with training and educational programs throughout the year.
TeamFootWorks hasn’t missed a step since Hans’ passing on Thanksgiving weekend in 2014. Through support from the community, their staff, and the Huseby family – their events and training programs continue to grow.
Thanks to the events like the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, TeamFootWorks has donated over $2.607 million through May 2018 to local and national charities. For more information and list of beneficiaries, please visit teamfootworks.org
