Why is FishHawk Ranch Special?
There are many reasons why FishHawk Ranch is a special place. From the beautiful setting to the great amenities. This particular post is just going to talk about the people that live in the community that comes together to support great causes.
I am lucky and honored to be part of the FishHawk Softball League. It is the oldest and largest league in FishHawk Ranch. Yes we play softball on a beautiful field, yes we play a game we love and yes we get to hang out with friends on the weekend. This league is the best run, caring softball league I’ve ever been involved with. Twice a year, as a group, we are lucky enough to help change people’s lives. Yesterday I played in a celebration charity event for Dr. Kera Young. Not only is she a neighbor but a great friend. Together as a group, we met to celebrate the strides Kera is making to fight breast cancer. As a group for this cause, we raised over $13,000! Truly an amazing feat for such a small group of people.
Dr. Kera Young Softball Tournament
Last season the FishHawk Softball community held a tournament for Seeds of Hope. Seeds of Hope, based in Lithia, Florida, works closely with Title 1 schools in the area that identify underprivileged children. During the school year, the selected children receive a backpack with essential food once a week. Again the FishHawk Softball community stepped up and raised over $13,000 for this charity.
Another great charity is the Relay For Life, FishHawk. This charity is near in dear to our hearts as we will always remember our teammate and a great friend that lost his battle with the terrible disease. So last year members of the Bridgeview softball team worked with The Mosaic Company to run a booth and sell steaks, potatoes, and corn donated by Mosaic. Our small booth raised over $7,000 for the Relay For Life!
These are some of the charity events I’ve been involved in within FishHawk. This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many great charities and organizations run by FishHawk residents.
To me, FishHawk is special because the residents care enough to step up and help out others in need. It is a community, not just a bunch of houses. I am a long-time resident of FishHawk Ranch and I am proud to call it home!
