Orlando, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/11/2015 --On April 1, 2015, retirement consultation firm, Chepenik Financial, will host the 4.01K Race for Financial Fitness, the state's first-ever 4.01K race.
Participants will set off from Lake Baldwin in Baldwin Park, Orlando at precisely 4:01 PM. Race proceeds will benefit Junior Achievement of Central Florida, a non-profit organization that provides financial literacy education to students in grades K-12. Chepenik Financial firm has set an ambitious goal of raising $10,000 to support the organization's efforts.

Kathy Panter, president of the Central Florida chapter of JA, agrees that starting education early is essential. "We help kids develop financial skills that they will use for the rest of their lives," she said. "Chepenik Financial has been a wonderful partner in our mission."
In addition to Chepenik Financial, a number of corporate sponsors have signed on to support the 4.01K Race for Financial Fitness including LearnVest, CNL Financial Group, InCharge Debt Solutions, BB&T Bank, Legg Mason, and Walt Disney Imagineering.

The 4.01K Race for Financial Fitness reflects Chepenik Financial's long-standing commitment to creating a more fiscally fit community.
