Fifth Annual Tour de Broward
Sunday, February 23, 2014
Miramar Regional Park
Imagine knowing that the only way your child could survive would be through an organ donation - the heart from another precious child whose life ended too soon. Imagine being a teenager and passing out during your school football game. After an ambulance ride to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, you soon learn that you have a congenital heart problem that you never knew you had.
The Pediatric Cardiac Center at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital has been ever present for all of these patients, their families and many others through the years. Yet, the needs of the Cardiac Center are ever greater. Tour de Broward, presented by zMotion, will benefit the Cardiac Center in 2014, helping to continue the mission to save lives and provide the critical care that many of these patients require.
National statistics show that congenital heart defects are the most common types of birth defects in the United States. They affect nearly 40,000 infants born in the United States each year. Fundraising proceeds and donations to Cardiac Center are used to purchase high-tech equipment and provide emergency assistance to families.
Tour de Broward, presented by zMotion, is a five fitness and recreational event for families and the community. It consist of 100K and 50K cycling challenges, 5K Timed Run, 3K Family Walk and Power of Play Kid Zone. We look forward to seeing you there!
EVERY HEARTBEAT NEEDS A HERO
RIDE, RUN, WALK FOR A GOOD CAUSE
