Come Support our Fight Against Childhood Cancers
The objective of the event is to continue 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 of Southwest Florida is building a new 292,000 square foot, 128-bed children’s hospital on the campus of Health Park Medical Center. The new hospital will stand as a lasting legacy of a community’s gift to it’s future and a visionary doctor’s passion for treating young patients close to home.
To date we have raised over $130,000 for Barbara’s Friends, and there will be a room named at the new hospital in Ryan’s name and honor. The new Golisano’s Hospital of SWFL is set to open it’s doors April 1st!!! Thank you all for your many years of support and donations, that made this possible.
The 2015 Ryan’s Redfish Challenge teamed up with Grace For Chase in the fight against childhood cancers, and in memory of one of our own local SUPER HEROS – Chase Johnson. Read more about Chase’s Story. All of the proceeds, $17,000, were donated to Barbara’s Friends for Grace for Chase.
Our 2016 tournament proceeds benefited Barbara’s Friends and the family of Timothy Gardner who passed away following an auto accident on January 10, 2016. Tim was a friend of many but a hero to all. His generosity and time he spent volunteering will leave a lasting mark on our community. Tim’s lifelong joy of helping the youth of North Fort Myers will always be remembered. The family is working on a memorial in Tim’s honor.
It is with mixed emotions, I want to let you all know that we are going to take a year off in 2017, but will be back LOUD AND PROUD in 2018, to continue to raise money for such a great cause. I am hoping you all understand and will be back in 2018 to have THE BEST YEAR EVER! Anyone still wishing to donate this year, can do so with the link on the home page, DONATE NOW.
