Serena understands and is honored by the rare opportunity she has to use her global platform to assist others through monetary donations, lending a voice, and/or working in partnership with existing nonprofit organizations in both the United States and around the world. Serena’s main focus is in two distinct areas: helping individuals or communities effected by senseless violence; and ensuring equal access to education. Outside of her main focus, Serena will often take the opportunity to change a life, or make an impact when she is able.
Join thousands of spectators and participants, from casual joggers to some of the world’s ultimate elite runners for this unique opportunity to run with Serena Williams, winner of 21 Grand Slam Titles, 4 Olympic Gold Medals and the world’s #1 ranked women’s tennis pro.
On December 13th, during the peak of season, Miami’s famed Ocean Drive will be closed to traffic for the race start and finish. The spectacular course takes runners through the scenic oceanfront of Miami’s renowned South Beach, a major entertainment and tourist destination known for its unique visual beauty, Art Deco buildings, nightclubs, restaurants, boutiques and hotels. Celebrate with friends and family at the post-race party and enjoy food, drinks and entertainment. We also have some very attractive hotel deals with locations within walking distance of the start/finish line. For more information, please visit our website HERE.
The Serena Williams Live Ultimate Run South Beach welcomes runners of all abilities to join friends, fitness fanatics, stroller moms, the young and the young at heart for the ultimate fun run event.
About The Serena Williams Fund (OFFICIAL EVENT CHARITY)
The Serena Williams Fund was established to achieve two goals. The first is to provide assistance to youth whose parents and families have been affected by violent crimes. The Fund will do this by funding and creating programs that will provide counseling, care (foster care and day care), housing, food, and education to youth who have been affected by violent crimes throughout the United States.
The Fund’s second goal is to assist underprivileged youth around the world in receiving the highest quality education available to them. The Serena Williams Fund has achieved and will continue to work toward this goal by providing grants and scholarships to deserving high school students around the world. This work includes the two schools currently operating in Kenya that Serena opened in 2009 and 2010 respectively. These grants and scholarships will aid the students in attending college, learning a trade, or learning how they can start their own business so that they can better themselves and the world as a whole.
