Tap 42 Hosts 5K To Benefit Voices of Children on Friday, April 25th

As part of the launch of their Philanthropic Arm, Tap Takes Over, Tap 42 Fort Lauderdale will host a 5K to benefit Voices for Children of Broward on Saturday, April 25th at 7:30am. The course will weave through downtown Fort Lauderdale and end at Tap 42 with a post race Re-Fuel Breakfast Station.

Participants can register through EventBrite for $20 at, and registration will also be available pre-race starting at 6am. All ages are welcome to attend, and all proceeds will benefit Voices for Children of Broward. Voices for Children, in conjunction with the Guardian ad Litem Program, provides financial resources for health, education, and social needs for children in the foster care and child welfare system. 

Chief Operating Officer, Andy Yeager comments, "Since our inception, Tap 42 has always thrown large philanthropic events monthly at the restaurant to support local and national charities. As our initial kickoff event for Tap Takes Over, our team really felt a special connection to Voices for Children for Broward County, and knew that hosting a 5k in our city would help garner the attention that this cause so greatly deserves.  There are so many children that fall victim to neglect and abuse, and we wanted to help their voice be heard. Our goal is to raise over $10,000 for this cause.”

The Tap Takes Over weekend of events will kickoff with a pre-race happy hour and registration party at Tap 42 on Friday, April 24th. Local coconut purveyor, Coconut Cartel will provide coconuts for the restaurant’s signature Cartel Cocktail, and 100% of the proceeds will also benefit Voices for Children.
