Fire up your workout with help from Electric Run, the premier 5K nightlife run, and bring out your inner creativity at the launch of their 2016 Electric Run Recharged Season, kicking off in San Diego at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Saturday, March 26. Experience unique elements including crazy light shows, glow in the dark face painting, ELECTROBANDs – an illuminating LED bracelet that automatically syncs with the music – and an epic after party to make sure you enjoy breaking a sweat with every step you take.  
Sound too fun to be a real race? Think again! Check out the top five reasons below on why you should run the Electric Run 5K and take in the adrenaline of a 5K remixed with a dance party you won’t want to miss:
1. Party and Workout at the Same Time: When do you ever get to bust out your dance moves with friends, workout AND look awesome all for a great cause? It is the perfect excuse to party with besties and shake your tail feather for some fun.

2. A Memorable Sensory Experience: You get to experience the hottest music scattered along the entire course and jam out to five different music zones that bump to the rhythm of hundreds of LED lights.

3. Run For A Cause: A portion of the proceeds from Electric Run benefits Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence, a non-profit that works to educate communities on the dangers of domestic violence, connect victims and survivors, and assist in the transformation of those affected by domestic violence.

4. Perfect Excuse to Get Dressed Up: Have the chance to get dressed up in illuminating gear and it’s not even Halloween. Channel your festive art side and get charged with an array of neon gear.

5. Tons of Photo-Ops: Show off your face painting and electrified gear including glow in the dark tanks, hats, glow shades, bling rings and LED shades for some cool Instagram photo-ops by using the hashtags #ElectricRun #RunTheNight. 

The Green Planet Festival Brings Education on Sustainability to Fort Lauderdale



 If you’re a huge fan of everything-organic, yoga pants and poses, or understand what centering your chakras means, then don’t make the mistake of missing The Green Planet Festival. Set to take over the Broward County Convention Center on Feb 27th from 11am to 6pm, it is filled with positive vibes, over 150 exhibitors, live music, speakers, movie screenings, a wine & beer garden, food, workshops, children’s activities, yoga, fitness demonstrations and more. The Green Planet Festival is all about sustainability, empowering and educating local consumers on eco-friendly choices in the community. Launched by Kyle Michaud, the event began as a means to spread awareness towards the preservation of our resources. Giving back to the community is an effort that Kyle believes we all must contribute to. Educating his attendees on sustainability is key in obtaining success in his new endeavor. He believes in bringing people together by connecting them with other like-minded individuals and introducing them to healthy activities.


This year the festival is back for a second round, featuring large national brands as well as local businesses in the Fort Lauderdale area, seeking to level the playing field between public and privately owned businesses. The first Green Planet Festival attracted more than 6,000 attendees in Fort Lauderdale last February. The event provides community members with an accurate portrayal of what is available in their very own city, aiding in the support of small companies and further investing in a better tomorrow. All ages are welcome to attend the exciting event and meet other like-minded individuals in hopes of promoting the three core principals of the festival: education, choice and co-creation.


Kyle Michaud was born in Detchess County, New York, with eyes on the prize and a knack for launching successful businesses. Kyle received his Bachelor’s of Science from SUNY University of Albany as a complement to his entrepreneurial spirit. Equipped with great ideas for sensing trends before they’ve gone mainstream, Kyle began his career by launching an event planning company in between his homework assignments and booking exclusive headliners like Steve Aoki, Showtek and Adventure Club. His drive to succeed helped him garner large sums of money before he could even legally drink. After quickly rising to success, Kyle sold his business and launched the Green Planet Festival which he felt was a better fit for his lifestyle. Kyle had a goal to create a business platform that addressed society’s lack of awareness towards the preservation of our resources while giving back to the community. Today the Green Planet Festival features yoga, fitness, workshops, children’s activities and games, lectures, demonstrations, and over 100 green and sustainable South Florida companies. The event will be held on Saturday, February 27, from 11a.m. – 6p.m. at the Broward Convention Center. Tickets are $14.95 each, available online at
