Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation and Memorial Foundation had a record-setting year – holding special events that hit new heights in fundraising and welcoming new contributors. Along the way, we honored a new American Icon and recognized remarkable people who embody the Spirit of Healing.
Each year, thousands of people gather at Miramar Regional Park, united by one common cause – to support Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital at its annual Tour de Broward event.
Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation and Memorial Foundation had an amazing year – from the record funds we raised at Tour de Broward to the efforts of those who support the work we do. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of patients and families. We live in a truly remarkable place in which we not only have our friends’ and neighbors’ backs – we know they have ours.
The Joe DiMaggio American Icon Award is given annually to an individual who represents the highest of values for which Joe DiMaggio stood. Our 2016 recipient is executive, philanthropist and NBA legend Pat Riley.
