Orlando Veterans Day Parade, Downtown Orlando


Nov. 16
The 2nd Annual Mayor’s Sole Challenge Competitive fun walk between the residents of Eatonville, Maitland and Winter Park. 7 am Saturday; Central Park, North Park Avenue and West Morse Boulevard, Winter Park; free, registration requested; 407-644-2300; healthycentralflorida.org.

Fight for Air Climb Across the nation, the American Lung Association sponsors so-called “vertical road races” in local towers of architecture (with stairs, lazy!) to both fundraise and to raise awareness for various lung diseases. It’s a clever twist on the old trope of the “run” or “walk” around a scenic lake or park as a means of raising money, because in this case, you will likely be out of breath and know just a little bit of what it feels like to suffer from a debilitating respiratory disease. Also, your legs will hurt more. Still, 25 flights of stairs at 7 a.m. is bound to boost morale and likely to help your physique. Bonus! 7 am Saturday; Bank of America Center, 390 N. Orange Ave.; $15-$35; 407-425-5864.

Nov. 17
