Tour de Broward Returns to Miramar Regional Park
Walk/Run/Cycle/Play Event Benefits Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital
South Floridians will once again have the opportunity to gather in southwest Broward for one of the region’s favorite charitable events.
The Robins & Morton Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Tour de Broward, an annual fundraiser that helps expand programs and services for kids and families at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, will take place Sunday, March 6, from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm, at Miramar Regional Park.
The event combines fun, fitness, and philanthropy through a 3K walk, 5K timed run, 50 and 100K bicycle rides, and the “Power of Play Kid Zone,” a sports-themed, fun area for children 13 or younger. Each participant will receive breakfast, lunch, an event shirt, and goodie bag, along with the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting members of the community dealing with some of the most complex and challenging medical conditions.
“We’re excited to once again offer an in-person experience for those who desire that,” said Aurelio M. Fernandez III, FACHE, president and CEO of Memorial Healthcare System. “It’s an opportunity for all of us to make a statement about the type of caring community we want to live in, all while having fun with family and friends.”
In its 12 previous years, Tour de Broward has generated more than $5.5 million for pediatric healthcare in South Florida. For those who prefer to support the cause virtually, that’s an option, with individuals able to complete their event at the time and location of their choosing. Event materials will be mailed to all virtual participants.
The cost to participate is between $15-$50, depending on the event and sign-up date. Visit tourdebroward.com to learn more and register or call 954-905-5633. Details about sponsorship opportunities are available by calling 954-265-7241.
