Come Help Ryan’s Cause


Ryan McCleskey ended his fight against cancer on February 3, 2006. Family, friends, and acquaintances of Ryan wish to continue his battle with loving memory.

The objective of the event is to build awareness of the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation, and assist the children of Southwest Florida in their personal battles, by donating the proceeds raised to Barbara’s Friends, the Golisano Children’s Hospital Cancer Fund.

The Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida is building a new 292,000 square foot, 128-bed children’s hospital on the campus of Health Park Medical Center.

To date we have raised over $80,000 for Barbara’s Friends.

We are now seeking event sponsors and participants for 2014 and the Tenth Annual Ryan McCleskey Redfish Challenge.  Some of you have generously supported Ryan’s Redfish Challenge in the past; for others, this is our first request. Whichever the case, we hope we can count on your support for such an admirable cause. Your tax-deductible donation will be recognized in various ways. Visit our Sponsorship Page for a list of opportunities available this year.
