F.I.S.H. announces registration open for annual 10K race

By F.I.S.H. - | Jul 21, 2021

Registration is open for F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva’s 13th Annual 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H.

This year’s race will be held in two formats — an in-person running event on Oct. 23 and a virtual option, where runners can participate and then submit their time before Oct. 23 at 11:59 p.m.

Participants will receive a runner’s shirt with the Hortoon 10K logo on the front.

The registration cost is $40 by Oct. 17, with the price to increase afterward.

Participants are encouraged to fund raise on behalf of F.I.S.H., but it is not required. The minimum fundraising amount is $50. Participants who raise $250 will earn a refund on their registration.

Cielo is serving as the premier sponsor for this year’s event.

“We are so appreciative to the Boler family, Marcus and the entire Cielo team for continuing to be such outstanding community partners of F.I.S.H. and the annual 10K race,” 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H. Committee Chair Diane Cortese said. “Their ongoing generosity in support of our islanders is incredible, and we’re thankful for their support.”

Proceeds raised from the race will benefit F.I.S.H. as it continues to meet the needs of islanders for nearly 40 years. As the islands’ only wrap-around social services organization, it is experiencing significant growth in program usage, particularly the Helping Hands emergency financial assistance, food pantry, and the Meals-by-FISH hot meal delivery program for housebound island residents.

Registration is open via the Fort Myers Track Club at https://www.ftmyerstrackclub.com.
