Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is one of the area’s leading pediatric care hospitals, offering comprehensive health services and programs in an atmosphere that is child-friendly.  An all-new facility opened in July 2011 in Broward County thanks to the support of events such as the SFPC Toys in the Sun Run, which since

adopting the hospital, has donated over $4 million to benefit the facility.

Sample Road, Pompano Beach, FL, at 6:30am.  The 26 mile parade will begin promptly at 9:30am and will be escorted by ov 250 police officers from the tri-county area, in cars and on motorcycles.  Parade ends at the after-party/concert at Markham Park, 16001 W SR 84, Sunrise, FL, where each attendee will deliver their $20 + an unwrapped toy ($30 without a toy), and be entertained by Headliner, BRET MICHAELS.  You do not have to ride a bike to attend the after-party/concert at Markham Park.  ALL are welcome as there is plenty of vehicular AND bike parking, for those that do not wish to participate in the parade portion of the event.
