Wings for Life World Run

Running
Thousands of runners of all abilities are converging in Sunrise, Fla. at the BB&T Center on Sunday, May 7 for one of two U.S. races of the Wings for Life World Run. In a remarkable global race with 34 simultaneous starts and no set finish line, runners set off at 7 AM Eastern Time in races across six continents in 13 time zones, attempting to stay ahead of pursuing ‘catcher cars’ driven to chase and overpass them. Produced by Red Bull in partnership with the Wings for Life Foundation, this innovative worldwide race with a “moving finish line” was first held in May 2014 to benefit spinal cord injury research - with the goal to find a cure - and more than $4.1 million was raised in its inaugural year. RUNNING FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T The Wings for Life World Run was introduced to support the not-for-profit Wings for Life foundation, which funds spinal cord research projects all over the world. One hundred percent (100%) of the registration fees and sponsorship dollars from the World Run go directly to the Wings for Life Foundation to fund research to cure spinal cord injury. Millions of people around the world are living with a spinal cord injury. Every year, at least 250,000 more sustain a traumatic spinal cord injury, with the majority coming from traffic accidents, tragic falls and slips. THE CATCHER CAR Starting more than 100,000 participants at exactly the same time - day or night - worldwide, is one challenge. But the Wings for Life World Run goes one step further and changes the face of racing altogether: 30 minutes after the runners take off, the ‘catcher car’ will begin to follow them. Driving slowly first, but increasing its speed gradually, the catcher car is the moving finish line. Equipped with electronic sensors, the catcher car will pass the runners, registering their digital chips on its way to the leaders. The last male and female to be caught worldwide are the global champions.

Bruno Mars

Rock, R&B/Soul, Experimental (Incl. All Music Forms), Pop
Peter Hernandez, better known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is a singer-songwriter and music producer. He co-wrote and lent his vocals for such hits as B.o.B.'s "Nothing On You" and Travie McCoy's "Billionaire" and his songwriting prowess was further evidenced by the popularity of other hits like Cee-Lo Green's foul-mouthed but hook-laden "F**k You." Now, he's a bonafide (and Grammy-winning) star himself, with two hit albums and over 50 million singles sold worldwide, including such hits as "Grenade," "Just the Way You Are," "Locked Out of Heaven" and more. The 24K Magic World Tour marks Mars' first full-length tour since 2013's hugely successful Moonshine Jungle World Tour, an international blockbuster that sold 2 million tickets worldwide across 155 sold-out dates.
