King of the Hill
Sponsored by Columbus & Lourdes: Powered by SebastianStrong
September 8, 2017
Article ImageThe 2017 South Florida High School Cross Country season kicks off Friday, September 8th on “The Hill” in Tropical Park (Miami, FL). Races start at 3:30pm. 
 
SebastianStrong will be on-site selling shirts, tank tops, & bracelets. We gladly accepted the invitation from the XC coaches of Our Lady of Lourdes Academy & Christopher Columbus High School, as Sebastian proudly ran Cross Country for CCHS, under Coach Eric Pino.

The race will include 1000 athletes and over 40 teams competing to be "crowned" King (and Queen) of the Hill. The race features a uniquely festive atmosphere with the CCHS band playing as runners charge up the hill, and a DJ on the course as well. Winning teams also receive a custom-made trophy created by the CCHS Art Department.
 
Come out and support the Columbus & Lourdes Cross Country Teams & SebastianStrong.
Castaways Against Cancer: Kayaking for the Cure
“Just Breathe” (June 10-16, 2017)
Article ImageThanks to a very special group of people, the SebastianStrong Foundation was given the opportunity to raise funds for childhood cancer awareness & research through the efforts of the Castaways Against Cancer (www.castawaysagainstcancer.com).  Each year, for the past 18 years, a group of paddlers launch off in their kayaks from Key Biscayne, FL for a grueling 160 mile journey to Key West, FL to raise money for cancer research. This year, Eric Pino, Sebastian’s Cross Country coach, paddled a kayak in honor of Sebastian and allowed us to fundraise through his efforts. The stunning kayak was painted/wrapped by local artist Alejandro Mijares & MetroWrapz. We are thrilled to announce that this campaign was a huge success!
 
Thanks to all of our generous donors we raised over $87,000.
