daytona-beach-cancerAmerican Cancer Society – Relay for Life 

The American Cancer Society is looking to recruit more help for their upcoming American Cancer Society Relay For Life events in April 2015.
In addition, anyone who would like to know more about the upcoming events – ACS also offers presentations that come to you at no cost. This is perfect for local companies looking to get involved and partner with a well-known, reputable, non-profit organization.”In May 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern — cancer. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising nearly $5 billion to fight cancer.”

•Ft. Meyers Beach Trash Bash:  Join a fun-in-the-sun trash pick up on Saturday at the Burnt Store Boat Ramp in Cape Coral.  It will be a couple hours and will be fun for the old and the young.



Plan Ahead and Pack Effectively

miami-beachGetting all the way out to the beach only to find out, too late, that you are missing something crucial for your day in the sun can be very frustrating. Thinking ahead and making sure that nothing gets forgotten when it is time to go will ensure you do not find yourself without the means to fully enjoy yourself once you have reached your destination. Towels, umbrellas and even a cooler filled with snacks and drinks may all be able to improve your trip, so leaving them behind can put you in an awkward position once you get to the beach.

Safety First

Basic concerns would be making sure you have access to plenty of water when you are planning on spending time in the sun, as well as sunscreen to protect yourself from overexposure to the Florida sun. Additional supplies that will help ensure everyone involved is able to have the safest time possible would be flotation or safety devices for any poor swimmers that you may have with you and maybe even a first aid kit to ensure that minor accidents or injuries do not have to become a bigger issue than they have to be.

Other Things to Do at the Shore

Learning more about the water sports and activities that can be engaged in when you are at the beach could give you the opportunity to have a whole lot more fun than you would have just laying out in the sun. Services and opportunities like a tour, a sailing or boating expedition or anything else that the beach has to offer can give you the chance to have the best time possible, exploring such opportunities in advance may give you the chance to incorporate them into your other plans.

Thinking Outside the Beach

florida-secret-beachPlanning the perfect day or weekend at the beach may mean planning for more than just your time there. Restaurants, hotels and other attractions that can be found close to your destination may be worth researching, getting a bite to eat or having a comfortable place to rest up when you are not out having fun will ensure you have the best time possible when visiting Florida beaches. The attractions, establishments and other resources you need to ensure you have the best trip possible are not something you will want to forget about when you are making any plans for an upcoming visit to the beach.
