The 21st Annual Run for Tomorrow is to be held on Sunday, December 9, 2018. This 5K, Half Marathon, Mayor’s Get Fit Challenge One-Mile Family Health Walk and accompanying Rotary Fitness and Health Festival is jointly presented by the City of Weston and the Rotary Club of Weston.

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital returns as the title sponsor for the 2018 Run for Tomorrow and Mayor’s Challenge. The Rotary Club of Weston welcomes and applauds JDCH for its generous sponsorship, which ties into the City’s dedication and commitment to infrastructure and programs that promote exercise, safety and a healthy lifestyle.  The City of Weston has been recognized as a “Healthy Weight Community Champion” by the Florida Department of Health for the last 4 years. Other returning major sponsors include DynaServ, Ultimate Software, Mercantil Bank, and Carolina Ale House.

With thousands of participants, the Rotary Run for Tomorrow is the largest annual run and community wellness event in the City of Weston.

The Run for Tomorrow Half Marathon and the 5K courses are USATF certified, and wind through beautiful Weston, Florida, starting from Cypress Bay High School. Once again, artfully designed runner medals and dri-fit shirts are provided to all runners, in addition to winner recognition in each category.
