With proceeds from the 5K benefiting the OMYF, Magic fans can stay active and be healthy while helping at-risk kids in Central Florida.
The Orlando Magic and the DeVos family are committed to making a difference in Central Florida. Each year, the Magic gives more than $2 million to Central Florida by way of sponsorships of events, donated tickets, autographed merchandise and grants, impacting an estimated 100,000 youth annually. At the heart of the Magic’s charitable efforts is the work done by the OMYF.
The OMYF is committed to helping children in Central Florida realize their full potential, especially those most at-risk, by supporting nonprofit organizations offering youth-based programs in the areas of education, housing/homelessness, the arts and health and wellness. The OMYF has distributed more than $28 million over the last 33 years.
In celebration of 35 years of Orlando Magic basketball, the team recently unveiled a 35th anniversary logo for the 2023-24 season. As the Magic’s partner since 1989, the logo also features AdventHealth as the presenting partner for the 35th anniversary season.
