FUN WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS

All runners and walkers can participate at a location of their choice and complete their run/walk any time between Dec. 5–13. The Mayor’s Get Fit Challenge will take place on Dec. 6 as well as the virtual run events. The City of Weston and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital— the event’s sponsor— are presenting the event. Over the past 20 years, the Rotary Run for Tomorrow has raised well over $1 million in proceeds for charities serving local needs, which include Harvest Drive, LifeNet4Families, Jubilee Center, Honor Flight South Florida, and HANDY, as well as humanitarian projects in other countries and worldwide polio eradication programs through the Rotary Foundation. All participants of the Mayor’s Get Fit Challenge will receive a free festival T-shirt and giveaways, and can take part in multiple raffles and competitions. All elementary schools in Weston have been invited to participate in the Mayor’s Get Fit Challenge. Elementary schools can win cash prizes and the school with most participants percentage wise will be recognized with the Mayor’s Get Fit Challenge Award.
