The American Cancer Society - 2011 Relay For Life of Deerfield Beach & Lighthouse Point, FL:
This year Bluegreen Corporation joined the American Heart Association's Start! Program as part of its ongoing commitment to wellness. Because we have a long history of philanthropic work as well, it occurred to me that to up the number of miles we are reporting for the Start! Program, we could register for the local charity walks and raise money at the same time we are counting our steps. With that in mind, we already walked in Boca Raton's JDRF walk on April 9th and are walking in the GreatStrides event for Cystic Fibrosis at Florida Atlantic University tomorrow, May 1st. Our next walk is the Relay for Life event being held to benefit the American Cancer Society at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach, Florida, on Saturday, May 14th. It just so happens that Saturday, May 14th, is also the date of Bluegreen's 12th Annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit JDRF and Christel House...so it will be a banner day in terms of physical activities for wellness and philanthropic fundraising.
