February is shaping up to be an active month for Floridians raising funds to fight children's cancer. Over the course of the month, CureSearch Walks will occur in Miami, Hollywood, and West Palm Beach.
On February 4th, the CureSearch Walk - West Palm Beach kicks off the three February Walks in Florida. With a fundraising goal of $50,000, and an expected 500 individuals in attendance, the West Palm Beach is ready to get Florida's 2012 efforts to fund children's cancer research started with a bang. The Walk will take place at the Meyer Amphitheater and routes participants along the beautiful sidewalk of the inter-coastal waterway. A DJ and a juggler will be on hand to provide entertainment and hot dogs will be served at the conclusion of the event.
Miami is hoping to make a splash at the second annual CureSearch Walk - Miami. The Miami Walk committee has set an ambitious goal: to raise $100,000 with 1,250 walkers at their February 11 event. Opening ceremonies take place at Bayfront Park and the route winds along the inter-coastal waterway in downtown Miami. One unique feature planned for Miami includes an appearance by the Florida Marlin's mascot Billy the Marlin.
For those in the Hollywood area on February 11, the CureSearch Walk - Hollywood looks to make a huge impact in the fight against children's cancer. With a goal of $40,000 and 350 participants, the Hollywood Walks takes place with the scenic backdrop Hollywood Beach Amphitheater and beach. Children's cancer survivor and DJ, Rudy DeArmas, will be making announcements and playing music and the band "The Elevators" are scheduled to perform and keep those attending grooving to the beat.
