MELBOURNE, Fla. – Space Coast CU and the Melbourne & Beaches Music Marathon are partnering for a running-themed VISA debit card featuring a group of runners competing in the 2010 Melbourne Marathon Weekend, timed to coincide with the annual race being held this weekend.

The photo was taken last February by event photographer and Merritt Island resident Don Eggert and depicts runners heading east near the top of the Eau Gallie Causeway.

As part of the card rollout, Space Coast is donating $1,000 to the Brevard County Parks and Recreation Disabilities Program. This program organizes activities for challenged citizens of all ages throughout the county.

The State Farm Melbourne & Beaches Music Marathon Weekend draws about 3,000 runners and is Melbourne’s signature sporting event. The weekend of running includes a Ronald McDonald Kids run and Florida Today 5k and 8k races on Saturday, and the State Farm Half-Marathon and marathon, plus the Top End/Paralyzed Veterans of America hand cycle race on Sunday.
