We are located in the Rio Vista neighborhood of downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida and currently have more than 300 students. Bethany is well known for offering academic excellence in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment.

2) MAKE A PLEDGE by donating a dollar amount per lap (cap is 35 laps) to sponsor a student who may not have been able to get any pledges themselves OR by making a flat donation. You will be able to make donations with a credit or debit card using the convenient ONLINE PLEDGE PAY system.
