Thanks to all for a successful F.I.S.H. 10K

By Staff | Oct 20, 2010

To all the F.I.S.H. 10K supporters, volunteers and runners,

I wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who made the F.I.S.H. 10K a truly spectacular event on Saturday, Oct. 16. On behalf of the Board of F.I.S.H. and the hundreds of F.I.S.H. clients on the island, I would like to formally thank you all. The money we raised from the F.I.S.H. 10K will ensure that we can continue to help our neighbors on the islands.

The Board of F.I.S.H. and I would particularly want to thank our major sponsors who made this event possible. We are particularly pleased with the number of people who came out to help with the 10K this year – we had more than 170 people involved in the organization, management and cleanup of the F.I.S.H. 10K this year.

Our particular thanks go to our major sponsors, who included (Premier Sponsor) The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, (Gold Sponsor) Kiwanis Club of Sanibel and Captiva, and (Silver Sponsors) Arthur Printing, Bailey’s General Store, Billy’s Rentals, Breeze Newspapers, Island Sun and Lily & Co.

Our Bronze Sponsors included Bank of the Islands, Beachview Golf and Tennis Club, Doc Fords Rum & Bar Grille, Island Cow, John R. Wood, Keylime Bistro and R.C. Otters (Stilwell Enterprises), Lazy Flamingo, Sancap One Source Realty, Sandcastle Construction, Sanibel Home Furnishings, The Bean, Timbers and Matzaluna Restaurants and Viking Industries.

Our Friend Sponsors include Casa Ybel Resort, Chuck Andrews of REMAX, Island Pharmacy, Island Therapy, Jason Maughan Esq., Kona Kai Motel, The Mucky Duck, Periwinkle Park, Seashells.com, Shalimar Cottages and Motel, The Jacaranda and Traders.

Thanks to the members of the island service clubs who marshaled the event: Kiwanis, Optimist, Rotary, Lions and Zonta.

We would also like to thank the F.I.S.H. 10K Committee who worked tirelessly for over nine months, the F.I.S.H. volunteers who supported the event in force and to the City of Sanibel for all their assistance during the F.I.S.H. 10K. We also thank the Fort Myers Track Club without whom we would not have had such a successful event.

The F.I.S.H. 10K was a truly memorable Sanibel event – a fun time, beautiful weather all in a good cause. We could not have had such a successful event without your support and so I thank you all most sincerely for your generosity.

Maggi Feiner

President, F.I.S.H. of Sanibel
