Realtors Association of Palm Beaches

5th Annual Barrier-Free 5K Charity Walk, Run or Roll
Took place on February 11, 2017 at 7:30AM
and was a great success!

It was quite the turnout at our Barrier-Free 5K Charity Run, Walk & Roll on Saturday, February 11th at Congress Avenue Barrier-Free Park! The South/Central Community Outreach Committee for the Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches (RAPB), and our event partner, the City of Boynton Beach, would like to thank the 200 plus Realtor®, affiliate, staff, and community members for participating in our 5th annual event. Your tremendous support over the years has helped to raise $25,000 plus to benefit a unique park that allows children and adults with disabilities to play, laugh, and live without limits. RAPB would also like to give special thanks to this year’s honorary starter, 11 year old Emma Pietrafesa, who kicked off the 5K in her “magic wheelchair”. Emma is a beautiful girl who pushes through life’s struggles despite dealing with Cornelia de Lange, a developmental disorder which affects many parts of the body. Emma also recently lost her father, Firefighter Paul Pietrafesa, due to pancreatic cancer. Emma and her mom, Karen Cosco-Pietrafesa, inspired all attendees, and RAPB volunteers — Pamela Banks, Lemun Fields, Robert Garrison, Lisa Mack, Antonella M. Bendit, CJ Minardi, Jack Porrata (Committee Vice Chair), Pamela Rocco, Jana Torvi (Committee Chair), and Brian (Director) & Sharon Woods — were honored to meet them
