ANF Group's Tour de Broward Raises Money for Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital
FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- On Sunday, February 14,
the first annual ANF Group's Tour de Broward presented by zMotion,
raised $250,000 toward the building of Broward County's only
free-standing children's hospital.
Hosted by Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital at Miramar Regional Park,
Zimmerman Advertising's Team zMotion had 75 riders participate in the
ride (50K or 100K), run (5K), walk (3K) and spin that boasted 2,500
total participants and 200 volunteers.
The funds raised for the building campaign will go towards a new
facility that will include pediatric cancer treatment, open-heart
surgery and end-stage renal disease. Reggae-fusion singer and rapper
Sean Kingston was on hand at the event, having pledged to raise $1
million for the construction. All donations of $5.00 or more received a
Sean Kingston "Building for Tomorrow" wristband.
"The first annual Tour de Broward was a fantastic event. Lots of
people came out to support a good cause despite the frigid temperatures,
including riders, runners, walkers, volunteers, vendors and performers -
everybody was a real trooper," said Pat Patregnani, founder of Team
zMotion and President of Zimmerman Advertising. "It was especially great
to have Sean Kingston's support before and during the event - he was
lots of fun!"
