Our nation’s protectors by coming together to celebrate the freedoms we share while cheering our heroes to victory.
Four teams representing Fire Fighters, Police, Military and Patriots participated in a Human Baton exhibition. Competition started weeks before the event as each division of participants competed to find the top athlete to represent their team on September 11th.
On the day of the event, the top athletes became the team’s navigator and guided their expert driver through the course of skydiving onto Fort Lauderdale Beach, drifting around Seabreeze Boulevard loop, showing off in a GT Sports Car on SR A1A, navigate the surf on Thundercat boats, and lastly, an epic foot race up the beach to the finish line.
