Del Monte Fresh Produce, Coral Gables, Fla., participated in two charity events on Sept. 29 that were hosted by Miami Children’s Hospital.
Other partners to the event included Publix, Hyundai and Total Bank, according to a news release.
Brand ambassadors in Del Monte banana costumes distributed fresh fruit to participants at both events.
One event was the 2nd Annual Miami Children’s Hospital 5K race at Coral Gables City Hall, according to the release.
The other event was the Miami Paddle Challenge at Matheson Hammock Park, where five Del Monte “bananas” participated in the race.
“We were happy to support these two worthwhile events with a small healthy token of appreciation to all those participants who raised funds for such an important institution in our community,” Dennis Christou, Del Monte Fresh Produce vice president of North America Marketing, said in the release.
All proceeds from the event were donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, according to the release.
