8th Annual ANF Group Tour De Broward Set to Benefit Kids & Families at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital
Date:11/28/2016

The message on the shirt Naida Revelo wore in her first 5K run made it clear what motivated the grandmother to take on the physical challenge: “Joe D’s Saved My Grandson’s Life.”

Revelo was among the more than 6,000 people who participated in the 2016 Tour de Broward, with each having their own reasons for cycling, running, or walking.

A similar number is expected again in 2017, each of them united by a desire to support Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, the region’s largest pediatric facility serving Broward, Palm Beach, and northern Miami-Dade counties. The same facility that has impacted many lives.

“This is an opportunity for the South Florida community to assist our efforts to provide safe, high quality, cost-effective, patient and family-centered care,” said Memorial Healthcare System President & CEO Aurelio M. Fernandez, III, FACHE. “We want everyone in our community to get involved.”

The event – which takes place Sunday, February 26, at Miramar Regional Park – has raised more than $2.5 million in its previous seven years for Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, a facility that provides care regardless of one’s ability to pay.

Sponsored by ANF Group, Tour de Broward consists of 50 and 100K bicycle rides, a 5K timed run, 3K walk, and the “Power of Play Kid Zone,” a sports-themed, fun area for children 13 or younger. The 100K ride starts at 7:00 a.m., run at 8:00 am and walk at 9:00 a.m.

Pre-registration and day-of registration fees range from $15-$50, depending on the event and sign-up date. Participants can register in advance at http://www.tourdebroward.com or at the park on the day of the event. Pre-registration takes place until noon Saturday, February 25. For runners and riders there is an additional fundraising commitment, however, some exceptions apply. Please refer to Event Information on the Tour de Broward website at http://www.tourdebroward.com.

Due to construction at the park, all participant and volunteer parking will be held on the grounds of Memorial Hospital Miramar, 1901 SW 172 Ave., Miramar, Florida. There will be no parking permitted at the park. Shuttles will be provided.

To learn about sponsorship opportunities, call (954) 265-7241. For general information about the event, call (954) 905-5633.
