Thanks to our friends at the Island Reporter for this update!
In 2009, F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva held its first 10K “Race 4 F.I.S.H.” fundraiser for the non-profit organization, which was founded 36 years ago based on the concept of “neighbors helping neighbors.” This year’s race is scheduled for October 27th, starting at 7 a.m. at the Sanibel Community Park.
The event utilizes the help of the city of Sanibel, Fort Myers Track Club, many volunteers and the financial support of multiple sponsors. Runners are local or regional, come from around the state, other parts of the country and even from other countries. Celebrating his 100th race, Tom Kelly will run the 10K this year.
“I’ve done the F.I.S.H. 10K several times, and I’m always impressed with how well F.I.S.H. and the Fort Myers Track Club organize all the details and how enthusiastically the volunteers cheer for all the runners,” he said. “To a runner, this is so appreciated because it makes the race so much more fun. Of course, the main reason I enjoy it so much is because of the cause it supports. F.I.S.H. is a major help to so many people in need, and it’s a satisfying feeling knowing I’m helping in a small way by participating in the 10K.”
There are many individuals living and/or working on the islands who need assistance. F.I.S.H. is a “neighbors helping neighbors” non-profit supported by donations and volunteers. The organization has grown to the extent that many families working in the service industry, children and seniors comprise its 3,959 clients in 1,863 households.
It acts very quickly and efficiently; I tried as I had some problems. Now I feel much more confident. The main thing about generic viagra is to do everything according to the instructions. I didn’t notice any side effects. The viagra price at https://signanthealth.com/viagra-treat-ed/ pleasantly surprised me, and there were no problems with the delivery. In general, I was satisfied.
F.I.S.H. offers food from its pantry, counseling, community resource referrals, emergency financial assistance for unexpected medical, rent, utility and other expenses, and more. It provides scholarships for children to attend summer, specialty and after-school programs and fills over 1,000 backpacks yearly with weekend food for qualified households living and/or working on the islands with school-age children from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
