Like in previous years, The Mercedes Benz Corporate Run was an event for all of Downtown Miami to enjoy, especially with all of the corporations coming down to represent themselves, with a total of nearly 30,000 members of the community filling the streets. This past Thursday, April 28th, 2016 was one of the largest events in downtown Miami for the early spring season, especially with One Two Tree doing its part in promoting the event’s healthy message.
Keeping up with the hardworking attitude of its colleagues, One Two Tree stood among its peers in its tent along the starting line grounds. At the forefront of the starting line came the runners, ranging from organizations representing Miami institutions, such as The University of Miami, Leon Medical Group, Baptist Hospital and Florida International University to name a few.
Donating their specialized bucket trucks, they helped photographers catch the action from above, with a wide angle of the starting line as the thousands of runners in teams gathered before the starting cannon signaled the beginning of the run.
This large group of representatives for their businesses, their CEOs and their teams began gathering before making their way across the long stretch of road, walking, running, or even pedaling their way down Biscayne Boulevard.
With roads closed down for the next few hours, the race started at 6:45 PM, following the blast from a loud cannon and with celebratory smoke mixed with ticket taped rained down from the elaborately decorated starting line. Right by the starting line, members of the One Two Tree team cheered on the thousands of runners making their way down the long winding streets of Biscayne Boulevard.
Standing up on the trucks, team members and their families, including Dusty Montiel of the Pest Control Division, Richard Barocas of the Tree Care Division to owner Marc Terwilliger himself came out to celebrate with the rest of the corporations on site.
