About This Activity

The Tacky Sweater 5K is an event designed by University of Florida medical students to help raise awareness and monetary support for our 6 different medical outreach trips. Through these trips 115 medical students and 48 physicians from UF travel beyond U.S. borders to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Ecuador, and Nicaragua to provide medical services to over 6,1000 patients during the course of 1 week. Funded solely by donations, these service trips provide students with invaluable experiences in cross-cultural medicine while making an impact within the communisities they serve.

We hope to bring together the Gainesville community for a fun and healthy event to celebrate the holiday season!
