13th Annual Tour de Broward
Sunday, March 6, 2022
History of the Tour de Broward
For the past twelve years thousands of people have cycled, run or walked to for one common cause - to support Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital at its annual Tour de Broward event. Now in its thirteenth year, the need is greater than ever to raise funds for South Broward's only pediatric hospital, which has become the leading children's hospital in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. In Fiscal Year 2021, JDCH cared for children needing 61,607 hospital outpatient visits, 7,455 pediatric surgeries, and 9,538 admissions and observation stays.
What the Tour de Broward Supports
Funds from previous years have supported the hospital's Heart Institute, which provides children with a complete continuum of care from diagnosis to repair of congenital defects and other cardiac dysfunctions. It houses the Pediatric Heart Transplant Program, one of only two of its kind in South Florida. Funds have also supported programs for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, helping to improve the lives of many oncology patients and families. However, the need is greater because funds raised this year will help support the expansion of Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, as we add four more floors with cutting edge medical technology so we can continue to care for the children that come to us for care.
