“As we all know, there is no place like home, but for some families in Brevard County there is no home at all,” said Sheriff Wayne Ivey of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

“That’s why this year the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with Family Promise Of Brevard to bring you the Annual Emerald City 5K that fights homelessness in our community,” Ivey added.

Race shirts are guaranteed as long as you register by February 14, 2019.
