Dustin Edwards and Stefanie Ink-Edwards wanted a new way to raise money for worthy causes, but they wanted to do it in a way that promoted active lifestyles. The answer was simple—start a non-profit mud run, and donate all of the proceeds to charity. They established the South Florida Mud Run, which sends waves of runners sprinting through 5 kilometers of mud and obstacles. Both man-made and natural, the obstacles range from mud crawls and tire walls to plank bridges and water pits. 100% of the proceeds go to benefit the Southwest Florida Children’s Hospital.

She regularly changes up her dance routines to prevent boredom and keep feet guessing.

In 1999, Ira Barsky and Ed Sarbey formed a coalition of animal-welfare supporters to combat the euthanizing of adoptable pets in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. They founded Animal Rescue Coalition (ARC) and purchased a mobile spay or neuter clinic to help reduce pet overpopulation. Since 2002, the organization has sterilized more than 32,000 cats and dogs, primarily offering its services to low-income families that could not otherwise afford the procedure. Additionally, ARC's emergency medical fund supplements this no-kill approach by paying for the medical supplies and medicines needed by sick or injured animals picked up by Sarasota County Animal Services. Drs. Nan Rosenberry and David Smith then provide complementary treatment for any animals brought into Bay Road Animal Hospital. ARC also sponsors a feral cat program and an adoption effort to ensure cats and dogs enter permanent and loving homes.
