Progressive Builders raises $8,371 in Relay for Life of Fort Myers

On April 29, Progressive Builders, a design/build remodeling firm in Southwest Florida, joined thousands of people - teams, sponsors, performers and volunteers - in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Fort Myers, a fundraising event to end cancer held at Lakes Park.

Relay For Life started in May of 1985 when a Tacoma, Washington, physician completed a 24-hour marathon around a track raising $27,000 for the American Cancer Society.

For nearly ten years, Progressive Builders employees have actively participated in Relay For Life, joining more than four million participants in more than 20 countries to raise cancer awareness and much-needed funds to save lives.

For Progressive Builders, fundraising dollars at this year's relay came from cash donations that were solicited from friends, family and business associates, and volunteers also set up a grilling station at the event selling sausage and meatball sandwiches, soda, water and cookies to attendees. Raffle tickets for an Aeroponic Growing System Garden Tower and a gift certificate to Chang N Faces beauty salon in Cape Coral were also sold.

Headquartered in Fort Myers, Progressive Builders specializes in whole house remodels, room additions, kitchen and bathroom remodels, as well as outdoor kitchens or outdoor living spaces. For more information, visit
