Event Description

On September 22, 2012, a stretch of Central Boulevard will transform into a never-before-seen-in-Orlando race track. The date marks Urban ReThink’s First Annual Broomstick Pony Derby, a day of .131 and .262 mile races and pageantry for all ages

The race celebrates community and creativity and will raise funds, friends, and awareness for enhancing Urban ReThink’s operations and programming. Urban ReThink is part of the 501(c)(3) Urban Think! Foundation.
