St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer

SouthWood Town Center
Join the fight for the 2015 St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer!

On Saturday, September 26, 2015, during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, tens of thousands of St. Jude supporters nationwide join together for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.

This exciting, family-friendly 5K walk/run event will be held at SouthWood Town Center to help raise money and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. With your help, families will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

How can you help?
• Join the local planning committee.
• Register your team to walk and fundraise.

• Volunteer on Walk Day.
• Sign up your company as a local sponsor or corporate team.

"THE LIBYAN", a memoir, is Esther Kofod's debut book. Esther was married to the Foreign Advisor to Muammar Ghaddafi and Chairman of the Strategic Studies Center in Tripoli, Libya and lived in Libya for five years before being forced to leave for political reasons. "THE LIBYAN" is a captivating memoir sweeping four continents and several decades on a journey of passion, terror, and betrayal. It puts a face on the lives and culture of Libya and Libyans during the early years of the ruthless dictator, Muammar Ghaddafi.

Robert L. Parke is a retired police officer and private investigator. He works part time as a security officer for a local, Tallahassee college sorority where he was inspired to write "Staying Safe in an Unsafe World". This book is a guide with tips and techniques to protect oneself and learn to stay out of danger. These are important skills for women entering the world on their own for the first time.

Please come and support these fine local authors.

Who hasn’t tried a difficult diet at some point? “Never eat Fat.” “Cut out all sugars.” “Only eat cabbage soup.” Overly restrictive diets don’t work for everyone.

Join Chef Matt for a discussion about how relatively small changes can potentially add up to larger results. Topics will include how to figure out your individual basal metabolic rate, total daily energy expenditure and macronutrient goals as well as the benefits of trying to eat more whole foods. Samples of healthy dishes will be provided, and each attendee will receive a coupon for the cost of the class to apply off their grocery bill at Whole Foods Market so they can immediately get started making their own tasty, but healthier foods.

Over 2.5 million African Americans served in all branches of service, and in all theaters of operations during World War II. Despite extensive discrimination and segregation, they met the challenge, persevered and served with distinction and honor. Many black infantrymen were involved in the war in Europe and the war in the Pacific. In addition, black support of war efforts from the home front was important to the success of allied forces.

Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta

Oct 3, 2015 12pm-3pm

FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory, 3618 Coastal Highway 98, St. Teresa, Florida, 32358
It’s time once again for you to challenge your friends, your family, and your colleagues to build boats out of stuff that any normal person would take to the dump and enter them in the Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta at the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory. Boats can be as artistic or as ugly as you want to make them. Just build ‘em and they will float . . . more or less.

You landlubbers will be busy ashore cheering on the captains and crews of these outrageously constructed vessels as they sail, row, or scull around the course, topple over, or slowly sink into Apalachee Bay. Watch the Regatta from various shoreline vantage points around the lab on either side of the boat basin. Enjoy good food, have loads of fun, all while learning about recycling and how to reduce the impact of plastics in our marine environments.
