Journalist Germany Kent reminds us that you should “immerse yourself in a cause you’re passionate about.” We believe in the importance of community outreach programs and partnerships that contribute to the development, improvement, health, and wellness of Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. To fulfill our passion, TFMJF has anchored itself in the community and aims to meet the needs of the public by orchestrating and participating in monthly and annual events.
Fight-4-Fitness 5K Run, 2K Walk, KIDS FUN RUN, and Community Day:
The annual Fight-4-Fitness 5K Run, 2K Walk, KIDS FUN RUN and Community Day takes place during the spring months at a community park in Las Vegas, NV. The mission of this event is to form community alliances where awareness and empowerment serves as the nucleus for an improved quality of life. Participants of all ages and all walks of life and community supporters are welcomed to join the “fight” against health trends that have been adversely affecting the quality of life in our community.
At Fight-4-Fitness we promote good health through the celebration of life and embrace healthy lifestyle changes while encouraging and supporting others in the community to do the same. Interaction is the key to obtaining and/or maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Participating in the Fight-4-Fitness event can be the catalyst needed to create a vigorous, happy, and healthy community. A portion of the net proceeds is also donated to a few sports teams and nonprofit organizations in the Las Vegas area that promote health and wellness to children and adults in the immediate community.
TFMJF is looking forward to hosting this exciting event for years to come and we are convinced that Fight-4-Fitness is only the starting line for the community – the finish line will be a lifestyle that incorporates consistent exercise, healthy eating habits, raised awareness of personal health, and an innate desire to inspire others to join the “fight!”
Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway:
The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation and Mayweather Promotions partner every holiday season to present families in Las Vegas with Thanksgiving baskets filled with non-perishable dinner preparation items and fresh turkeys. The mission of our highly anticipated annual giveaway is to raise awareness and cater to the needs of many underprivileged families across the valley.
Trivia Tuesday’s & Thankful Thursday’s Giveaways:
Mayweather Promotions joins TFMJF annually in providing fans with $50 and $100 gift cards, memorabilia, and merchandise during the holiday season through our #TriviaTuesday and #ThankfulThursday social media giveaways. This giving campaign was designed as a contest to extend our appreciation to our followers and supporters near and far. The response we receive from the winners is overwhelming and touching, as many of them express their gratitude to us for helping lift the burden of providing food, clothing, and gifts for their families.
Hygiene Care Kit Preparation:
Hygiene care kits with essential items such as water, shampoo/conditioner, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, and necessities are prepared and donated to local charities throughout the year.
Clothing Collection and Donation:
Several times a year high quality gently used apparel, shoes, and so much more are donated to local charities. The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation has also used this as an opportunity to team up with other companies in the community such as Allstate Insurance, with a goal to have a greater impact on the Las Vegas community.
Throughout each year, team building activities that encompass venturing out into the greater Las Vegas area to support the organizations that continue to carry the torch of excellence in community outreach are conducted. The foundation is honored to support the following not-for-profit organizations over the past year:
Opportunity Village of Southern Nevada is a non-profit that aims to serve people throughout our community with developmental disabilities. Through vocational training, community employment, day services, advocacy, arts, and social recreation, citizens with severe disabilities are able to find new friends, realize future career paths, seek independence and community integration, and unleash creative passions. The goal of their giving initiative is to enhance the lives of their clients and the lives of the families who love them. TFMJF’s support for this organization comes through donations of a broad range of gently used items that range from clothing and shoes to household appliances and electronics. Our donations benefit the individuals with disabilities that work at Opportunity Village facilities by creating jobs that meet their skillsets and passion. We also had the honor to participate in their fall football contest-Picks for OV, an exciting way for their supporters and football fans to have some fun while supporting OV. A monetary donation was made for participation in a bracket style sports competition against other supporters with weekly picks versus the spread throughout the NFL football season. We look forward to our continued relationship with Opportunity Village and aiding our community members!
#HashtagLunchbag was established in 2012 to give back during the winter holidays. It has now expanded to over 100 U.S. cities, including Las Vegas. The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation has actively participated in the #Hashtag movement. The lunches, known as #lovebags, include a signature love note featuring words of inspiration and encouragement, and are made to feed over 200 individuals. This heartwarming experience shows the power of love and teamwork to make a difference.
Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth(NPHY):
The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation partners with NPHY to help the youth in Southern Nevada have a brighter holiday season. The mission of NPHY’s programs are to stabilize the lives of homeless teens, meet their immediate needs, and provide them with a safe, supportive environment, and a path to self-sufficiency.
Community Partners for Better Health Choose & Move Festival:
Community Partners for Better Health hosts the Choose and Move Festival annually in Las Vegas that encourages participants to engage in physical activity and adopt a healthier lifestyle as well as provide education on the role and importance of physical activity and nutrition in preventing chronic disease. This fun-filled event includes loads of family fun such as health screenings, Zumba, dance instruction, nutrition classes, food demonstrations, and health education information. TFMJF uses this opportunity to align with other empowering partners, inform the community of the foundation’s mission, upcoming events, and share our overall active involvement within the Las Vegas valley.

With more than 122 chapters in the U.S. and Canada, Caps for Kids is dedicated to providing caps signed by athletes, entertainers, and other notable celebrities to children who have been diagnosed with cancer or receiving chemotherapy to treat life threatening illnesses.
