It is an annual event in South Florida that seems to grow bigger every year. They call it the Tour de Broward, a day of five fitness activities offered by our good friends (and much appreciated sponsors) at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. JDCH hosts the Tour de Broward to raise money for its well-respected hospital. In 2014, the funds will benefit their Pediatric Cardiac Center.
That center is an important part of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. As they note on the Tour de Broward website, congenital heart defects are the most common birth defect in the United States. The money that comes in from Tour de Broward will buy high-tech equipment and also pay for emergency assistance for families. Presented by zMotion, the Tour de Broward is a fun day that involves 100K and 50K cycling, a 5K timed run, a 3K family walk and the Power of Play Kid Zone.
It all happens this Sunday, February 23, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Miramar Regional Park in Miramar, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale. For more information, just check out this link: http://tourdebroward.com. We are proud of our association with JDCH, which has now sponsored the Humanity Project for three consecutive years and counting. We look forward to many more years of close collaboration on Humanity Project programs such as our innovative I Care: Just Let Me Drive teen driver safety effort and our nationally acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program. If you’re in South Florida, we hope you’ll find the best way for you to help out during this year’s Tour de Broward. There are many options to explore at that Tour de Broward link above. The weather should be lovely, the people are sure to be upbeat and fun … and the cause is important. What better way to spend a Sunday?
