"I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity this past year to work with Fox Sports en Espanol, a wonderful group consisting of hard-working and dedicated people," said Castillo, who will give up her crown on April 12, 2004. "I am proud to take part in the Carnaval Miami 8K Run to help cheer on the youths in the Miami-Dade County community. I love being a champion of today's young adults, and believe in the importance that they should 'never give up their dreams,' and events like this run help to make a dream become a reality!"
