Travel Around I-Drive at Pointe Orlando

The inaugural Travel Around I-Drive at Pointe Orlando event took place on May 5th, 2015 to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week.
The event was a fun scavenger hunt with 5 stops, the participating venues being Copper Canyon Grill, Tharoo & Co. Jewelry Boutique, Hollister, Hard Knocks and Taverna Opa. Prizes were given for Best Dressed, First Individual to cross the finish line and to the First Team to finish.
Sponsors were Visit Orlando, Pointe Orlando, I-Drive Improvement District, Paramount Hospitality Management Resort Collection and Mears Transportation Group.
We successfully raised $7,715 with only 54 participants! All proceeds benefited the I-Drive YMCA Aquatic Center Scholarship fund.
This event replaced the annual I-Drive 5k run, which we had held for the past 12 years, yet due to many other conflicting races happening on the same date, we cancelled it for 2015. Over the past 13 years we have been able to donate total of $140,148 to the I-Drive YMCA Aquatic Center’s Scholarship fund by holding an annual fundraising event.
Our goal is grow the annual Travel Around I-Drive event and continue giving back to our community!
