Join us on Saturday November 2, 2024 at Vista View Park in Davie for the Inaugural Becker Strong 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk to honor Embassy Creek Elementary's very own Robert Becker.  As many of you know, Robert Becker was the beloved principal at Embassy Creek Elementary in Cooper City and lost his battle to cancer in 2024.  Robert loved his family, friends, and running.  Mr. Becker will be missed but he will never be forgotten, as he touched so many individuals, students, teachers, and families.

Come show your support and love for Mr. Becker in one of his favorite activities....running.  Sign up today as the South Florida community shows their appreciation for all that Mr. Becker provided to the Embassy Creek family for 20 years.

Participants have the option to participate in the 5K run/walk or 1 mile walk.  The 5K is a chipped timed event and will provide awards to the top 3 overall and age groups.  The 1 Mile walk is a fun, non-competitive, non-timed event.
