Join us at the Sanibel Community House on Saturday, October 18th at 7:30 a.m. for the 6th Annual 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H., located at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel Island, FL 33957. Proceeds from this event will support the human services efforts of F.I.S.H., a partner of United Way and the area’s leading nonprofit, non-sectarian organization focused on “neighbors helping neighbors.”

The Sanibel-Captiva Island community is uniquely comprised of residents, snow birds, visitors and those who work here, but to each other, we are all neighbors. The mission of F.I.S.H. is to lend a helping hand to those in need on Sanibel or Captiva who live, work or visit here. With the objective to make a social investment in our community that assists our neighbors to live independently with dignity in their homes, F.I.S.H. ministers to everyone, whether resident or visitor, and fulfills a wide range of needs.
