Grass Roots, Community-Based Team Event to be Held on April 29th, 2017

Fort Myers, Florida, April 11, 2017 – Progressive Builders, an award-winning design/build remodeling firm in Southwest Florida, is participating in The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Fort Myers, to be held on April 29th from 10AM to 10PM at Lakes Park, 7330 Gladiolus Dr., Fort Myers, FL. The community is invited to attend—with cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers and community members gathering to remember loved ones lost, celebrate survivors, and encourage those who are still fighting this dreadful disease.

Progressive Builders joins in the world’s largest, most impactful fundraising event to end cancer, which started in May of 1985 by Dr. Gordy Klatt who took the first step of the 24-hour marathon around a Tacoma, Washington track raising $27,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Progressive Builders will join the Southwest Florida community in taking turns by walking or running around a track—one of its team members will be on the track at all times and all team members are participating in fundraising during the weeks leading up to the event. Progressive Builders will also be setting up a booth at the event, selling miscellaneous items—all proceeds of which will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

After dark, a Luminary Ceremony is held where candles are lit in remembrance of those who have lost their battle with cancer—honoring survivors. Among the love, support and care that is felt by all participants, this fabulous day is chock-full of entertainment, games, music, great food, camaraderie and fun.

“With many of us affected by cancer in one way or another, it is truly remarkable being able to see the entire Progressive Builders team come together for the Relay For Life event,” says President and Owner Mike Spreckelmeier. “I am extremely proud to be part of an incredibly passionate, caring team of people. Nothing is more rewarding than teaming together to make a difference in our community.”

Donations are welcome and encouraged. Support Progressive Builders and their cause.
