Save GoRun Project OCR @ American Airlines Arena

On Wednesday August 23, 2017 we found out that American Airlines Arena banned GoRun Project's leader, Freddy Garcia, from attending any further community workouts at American Airlines Arena stairs. 

All group members - which together constitute 550+ people that have attended GoRun Project at least once - are outraged and saddened.
We need you and any friends to reverse this horrible decision.

Background:
The American Airlines Arena were contacted by the owners of Go Run store in Brickell, Miami (120 SW 8th St Suite A, Miami, FL 33130) to convince A.A.A. to bar Freddy from leading GoRun Project at the location. They told the Arena that Freddy was a danger to the community and a liability to the Arena because 22 years ago, when Freddy was in his 20s, he dated someone who turned out to be under 18.
About GoRun Project OCR:
GoRun Project was founded and over 2 years ago by Freddy Garcia - who's sole philosophy is to bring free workouts to the community. GoRun Project OCR was sponsored by the Go Run store for 1 year, and they knew beforehand about Freddy's mistake 22 years ago. Go Run stores never paid Freddy, since he makes no profit on these workouts, but instead they gave the organization free t-shirts. In return for their sponsorship, Freddy came up with the name "GoRun Project", but retained full ownership of the name and the group. Freddy finds fulfillment in organizing effective running and strength workouts for the community. After the store no longer wanted to pay for the shirts, Freddy was able to get 12 new local sponsors to outfit the "tribe members" for workouts & races with team T-Shirts. Last Wednesday GoRun Project OCR hosted a 2 year anniversary workout party - where people with the best workout attendance received beautiful trophies!

What the owners of Go Run Store did was incredibly vindictive, dirty and sly.


Seeing the success of GoRun Project OCR, the store decided to monetize their workouts, hoping that Freddy's followers would join.
Freddy kept his philosophy about workouts being free - and the store withdrew their sponsorship from GoRun Project.
The store now wants to compete for Freddy's following. (over 1000+ likes on facebook, 13,000+ followers on Instagram, 550+ regular attendees)
And coincidentally enough, right after GoRun Project's largest workout yet - the 2 year anniversary party, where over 75 people showed up - the store made the dirty phone call to American Airlines Arena. That is what we call stooping low. That is what we call hitting below the belt. The Go Run store made an attempt at stealing GoRun Project's name, reputation and brand after they withdrew their sponsorship. And when they failed they proceeded to destroy everything GoRun Project OCR has created.

We Need You To Sign:
GoRun Project has brought exponential good to the community over the last 2+ years. Freddy has an amazing soul and thrives on spreading positivity and an active lifestyle. GoRun Project is nothing without Freddy. We, the members of "the Tribe" all agree and stand by Freddy, and pleadingly ask American Airlines Arena to reverse this wrongful, unfair and hurtful decision.
The workouts take place outdoors, in a public space outside the arena, so we ask the Arena to consider this, and understand that nothing inappropriate or dangerous can occur. There is no liability because its a big group, and we are out in the open.
