Lace up your sneakers and join us for the 20th Annual Riverwalk Run MAY 8TH - MAY 15TH.  Riverwalk Run is the signature fundraising event of The Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.


Planned for May 8th – May 15th, 2021 Virtually

Due to the ongoing pandemic the Riverwalk Run will be held virtually this year. The races offered will provide an opportunity for fitness and fun for the whole family as well as serious runners. All fitness levels are encouraged to participate. Options include running the 5k, 5 mile, or half marathon courses. 


Make an Impact​

This event raises funds to help members of the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale continue improving the surrounding community such as human trafficking awareness, food insecurity, diversity and inclusion, childhood fitness and nutrition. The Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization serving the community and women within the organization. The all-volunteer membership is made up of women who are committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. Our members work tirelessly to support important community issues impacting women and children throughout Broward County.​
