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 this year because funds raised will help support programs throughout Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, as it aims to grow in the community and continue to expand services.
Thank you so much for all of your support and I look forward to you joining us at the 13th Annual Tour de Broward, where together we will make a difference in the life of a child.
