“We are excited that FISH is able to host a community event, and that we can include a family component to the race by offering the Kids Run in the Community Park. A special thank you to Joey’s Custard for providing a delicious treat to the kids afterwards,” says Nicole McHale, 10K Committee Co-Chair.
FISH OF SANCAP is the leading non-profit, non-sectarian human services organization focused on “neighbors helping neighbors” on Sanibel and Captiva, and was founded 40 years ago. As a wrap-around service provider, when individuals or families come to FISH for the first time, they speak with a staff member to determine their specific needs and to learn about other FISH programs that can put them on a pathway to self-sustainability. Programs, including food and financial assistance with rent or medical bills; senior programs to prevent isolation and other supports for aging-in-place and more provide something for everyone.
