’Canes Saturate the Corporate Run with UPride

MIAMI, Fla. (April 23, 2015) — Torrential downpours weren’t enough to discourage University of Miami faculty and staff from lacing up their sneakers to run—or stroll—the 3.1 miles of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Miami Corporate Run, held Thursday in downtown Miami. Wearing specially designed orange T-shirts featuring the UM logo and Sebastian the Ibis, 1,453 members of Team UM—the most in the school’s history—joined more than 26,000 other competitors for the 30th anniversary of the event, which proved to be a saturating affair as skies opened up. All members of Team UM received a UM T-shirt, Metrorail pass, and food voucher and were entered in a drawing for prizes such as roundtrip airline tickets. View the slideshow below.
