)-- “We considered several nonprofit organizations but felt that the mission of 4KIDS of South Florida was the right match for Banyan. We spent several weeks getting to know the organization and felt that the Banyan team would be very supportive of the mission of 4KIDS of South Florida,” said Brandy Voss, Banyan’s Spirit Committee Director.
Last month, Banyan volunteers worked every Saturday to renovate a donated house by repairing drywall, fixing sprinklers, painting rooms, and working on landscaping. In addition, Banyan teammates support the nonprofit with donations through payroll deductions.
On Saturday, April 24th, the Banyan team will participate in the 4KIDS of South Florida BiG Cardio at Central Broward Regional Park, 3700 NW 11th Place, Lauderhill, FL. This annual event raises funds for the organization and consists of numerous activities such as a cardio class, 5K run/walk, boot camp, basketball tournament, and fitness expo. Banyan encourages everyone to register individually or form your own team or just come out and enjoy a morning of family fun while raising support for kids in crisis.
