About This Activity

The 15th Annual Riverwalk Run takes runners on a beautiful USATF Certified course along the New River and through the historic neighborhood of  Rio Vista in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. Choose to participate in the 5 mile run, 5K run/fitness walk, or enter the kids in the 1k Kids' Fun Run! We invite you to stay afterwards for brunch and the awards ceremony. Help us Run for the Future and make a difference in the lives of Broward County!

This event benefits the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale's current community projects.  Our newest projects include: The FLITE Center to benefit adolescents aging out of the foster care system, Childhood Fitness and Nutrition (Kids in the Kitchen and Healthfully Ever After), and numerous done-in-a-day projects benefiting other nonprofits in Broward County.

Founded in 1937, the JLGFL has created several of Broward County's top charitable organizations including Kids in Distress, Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, Henderson Mental Health Center, Museum of Discovery & Science, Jack & Jill Children's Center and more!   Over this 75 history, the JLGFL has invested over $1 million and provided over 1 million volunteer hours that have directly improved our community.
