The 2nd Annual Miles for Marli took place January 28th at Stafford Park. It could not have been more of a success! Over 500 friends, family, and MFM Supporters came out to show their powerful support!
The event was kicked off by Marli herself. She delivered a powerful message over the phone to all the guests. She started off by expressing her gratitude to all for everyone's continuous support. She then spoke of the importance of Marli's "real" message, which is to spread awareness of ovarian cancer and stop this "scourge" from affecting another woman's life.
The Miami Springs community played a big part in making this event so heartfelt. Thank you Miami Springs Mayor, Zavier Garcia for attending so many of our events and being an MFM believer! A special thanks goes to the Miami Springs Optimist Club for their delicious cooking and continuous support throughout the year! MFM would also like to thank DJ Frankie Bravo for donating his time, for being a wonderful friend and neighbor, and for his amazing support. Thank you Jorge from SAVE-A-STEP for donating all of the beverages! All students, teachers, parents, and friends from Blessed Trinity Catholic School did a wonderful job in demonstrating their love and support. Marli loved the yellow shirts, they were very touching! A special thanks also goes to Mrs. Doyle from Miami Springs Senior High School and Anchor Club sponsor for her hard work and for ALWAYS rallying up support from her students! Thank you Mrs. Donna Bray for ALWAYS helping MFM and for gaining support from your school! A special thank you also goes to A+Tutoring for their delicious baked goods for their love and support! And lastly but never forgotten is the unyielding love and constant support from our MFM friends and family!
High school students from all over South Florida attended and collected pledges for Miles for Marli. The enthusiasm and young spirit from all students was undeniable and made for a powerful event. Young ladies and their moms learned about ovarian cancer, making Marli's message reach multi-generations!
Message From Marli would like to give a special thanks to NBC 6 News Anchor Willard Shepard and his family for helping us spread the message and for being such great supporters!
We cannot wait for Next Year!
