Join Seafarers’ House in honoring seafarers for the 2020 Day of the Seafarer!

This year we are celebrating seafarers as Key Transport Workers, who keep global trade, goods and materials moving! To honor their work we are challenging our community to a “1.6 for Seafarers” movement challenge in honor of the 1.6 million seafarers around the world!

How to participate:

There are so many ways you can move and participate! You can choose to move in so many different ways:

Challenge your team, your family or yourself to get moving in support of the 1.6 seafarers who remain at sea as key transport workers during the pandemic.

Registration is $16 and all proceeds support Seafarers’ House. To read more about our efforts to care for the seafarers marooned by COVID-19 restrictions in Broward County, click here.

About Seafarers' House

For more than 30 years, Seafarers’ House has been a trusted resource for mariners. We are a 501 c 3 organization located inside Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and our mission is to offer refuge, resources, renewal and respect to the maritime community through multi-faith service. Seafarers' House is a safe, friendly place where mariners can connect with their families, relax, or get emergency assistance if needed. We play the role as a goodwill ambassador for Port Everglades and Broward County to the international maritime community, and serve as a place of welcome, providing the spiritual and practical services that mariners and the port community need and want. With nearly 150,000 crew visits to our center annually, we have touched the lives of countless mariners.
