RUN TO RALLY – Help change lives in your community.

Register today for the Run To Rally Community 5K Series or one or more of the six individual races as a walker/runner and be a part of the mission of changing lives through tennis in your community for your family, friends and neighbors.

Since 2010 over 750 grants have been awarded to programs supporting schools, adaptive programs connected to organizations such as Special Olympics Florida, Buddy Up, ACEing Autism and Love Serving Autism, public parks offering wheelchair tennis for youth and veterans, after-school programs and public tennis facilities.  That is rallying over $1,280,700 in funding to support programs and over 120 organizations including select volunteer-run Community Tennis Associations to provide so much more than just tennis statewide.

National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) organizations are providing life skills, educational support, mentorship, a safe place to go after-school and sometimes even meals for under-resourced youth.  These programs create opportunities to help students succeed in graduating, avoiding teen pregnancy and moving onto college.  For many of these students they are the first in their family to graduate from high school and many credit the NJTL for providing what they needed to achieve their educational goals.

Walkers and runners of all ages and abilities are welcome!  A great event for the entire family.  Each participant will receive a race bib, race medal, and personalized race certificate upon completion of the race.

The following is the 2019 race schedule:
