To the editor:

This past Saturday, May 2, brought the second Annual Racing for Cancer Causes Bed Races back to Cape Harbour Marina and with it support from many companies, individuals, and volunteers throughout our community. This is a very sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to all.

4 Words Foundation, Inc. and 21st Century CARE have partnered to bring this event to the community to raise funds to support cancer awareness, education, and patient financial assistance for ALL cancers. While the final numbers are not yet in we had reached approximately $4,000 prior to the event and this money will go a very long way in helping those in the local community. One hundred percent of net proceeds from this event stays right here in Southwest Florida. This is our way of giving back to you, our community

We wish to thank the following for their continued support of this event:

First and foremost - The Bed Teams - The Giving Alliance of Women (who swept every category: race winners, costume winners, and top team fundraisers), Klocke of America, Inc., Massage Envy, Fuccillo Kia, The Cancer Avengers, and team Brain Eating Cancer. Without their beds there wouldn't have been a race.

Our Host Cape Harbour Marina

Silver Sponsor (Jeff and Laura Koehn)

Bronze Sponsors Fuccillo Kia, Klocke of America, Inc., and Family Source Consultants

Award Sponsor Physician's Primary Care

T-Shirt Sponsors Express Employment, Henderson Franklin Attorneys at Law, Dependable Home Watch Services, H&R Block, and The French Press

A special thank you to our friends; Pink Heals of Southwest Florida and the Cape Coral Fire Department for being on site and supporting the event.

To our special guest Mayor Marni Sawicki for starting the races off for us.

To our emcee, Fox4 Rising Anchor Miriam Zamorano and our friends at Fox4 for supporting us for the 2nd year in a row.

To the Dixie Dancers from Dixie Roadhouse for providing us a wonderful display of line dancing to cancer survivor songs - it touched the hearts of many in the audience.

To all the companies who donated wonderful chance drawing raffle prizes to support our fund raising effort; we couldn't do it without your help.

To the wonderful volunteers - many of them coworker, friends, and cancer survivors for giving up their morning to help the event get set-up and run smoothly.

And lastly, I wish to thank my very good friends from 21st Century CARE; Ann Francis, Rabbi Agin, Sharon Salenius, and Rudi Ross for partnering again this year in this crazy event. They are a wonderful group of people who I admire for their hard work and dedication to helping cancer patients.

We hope to see all of you again next year!
