Get ready for a dynamic warm-up at the 15th Annual F.I.S.H. 10K/5K race on Sanibel! F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva is pleased to announce that Maura Doherty, an experienced A.C.E. certified group fitness instructor, will lead the runners’ warm-up on December 2nd.
“We want everyone to be as prepared as possible to do their very best at our race,” said Leah Winkler, 10K/5K Race Committee Co-chair. “Maura is an amazing instructor and athlete, who will provide a thorough warm-up for our runners.”
With over 25 years of experience in the fitness industry, Doherty is well-versed in a variety of modalities, including indoor cycling, yoga, strength training, and barre. She currently serves as the lead instructor at several barre studios and continues to seek out new learning opportunities in the health and wellness field.
“Anytime we can encourage fitness with the outdoors and pair that experience with a charitable cause, is a magic moment for our special island,” Doherty said. “In keeping with the goal of F.I.S.H. to enrich the lives of our island neighbors, I gladly support the 10K/5K race. The sense of community that this organization fosters and the resilience our residents have demonstrated is reason for celebration.”
The warm-up will take place approximately 20 minutes prior to the start of the 10K, ensuring that runners are well-prepared for the race. The event will begin and end at The Community House, with a virtual option also available.
All proceeds from the race will benefit F.I.S.H., a non-profit organization dedicated to providing essential services and support to individuals and families in need on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Your participation will help make a significant impact on the lives of your island neighbors.
