Community Leaders and Sponsors Needed
Sponsors play a key role in the success of the Beat The Leader 5K Run/2 Mile WalK and helping United Way provide families and individuals in our region with access to a safety net of services. In recognition of this important role, sponsors of the Beat the Leader 5K Run/2 Mile Walk will receive acknowledgement at the event, on race t-shirts and event packets, and more.
Beat the Leader is a 5K Run/2 Mile Walk race against our community leaders, company CEO's and public officials. Runners who beat the male or female leaders, accordingly in their race category ( 5K or 2 Mile Walk) will be recognized. This course is a simple out and back course on the beautiful beaches of Cocoa Beach. Post-race breakfast will be provided at Coconuts on the Beach.

Navigators to help Brevard residents with Health Insurance Marketplace
United Way of Brevard received a one-year grant which will create local "navigators," the federal government's name for those assigned to provide in-person assistance under Affordable Care Act. Navigators are trained and able to help consumers, small businesses, and their employees as they look for health coverage options through the Marketplace, including completing eligibility and enrollment forms. These individuals and organizations are required to be unbiased. Their services are free to consumers. United Way of Brevard has two level 2 background checked navigators who are available to help.
While many residents will participate in the Marketplace without help, via the website www.healthcare.gov. Navigators will be available to help the public at the following locations beginning October 1:
