Chair of the Board
Since it's founding in 1989 by Jim Nathan, Sheriff Mike Scott and a group of local leaders, the Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida has worked to provide prevention resources to families in Lee County. Prevention events include Drug House Odyssey, Red Ribbon Week Celebrations, Town Hall Meetings and Lunch and Learn Educational Events.
Our thanks to Dr. Jonathan Daitch and Dr. Michael Frey (Advanced Pain Management and Spine Specialists) for support of our Busey Bank Run for Prevention!
We need your help today! By supporting our Busey Bank Run for Prevention, you will support the coalition prevention initiatives planned for 2017. The Busey Bank Run for Prevention is planned for October 7, 2017 at Centennial Park in the River District, Fort Myers. A 6:00 p.m. 5K Chipped and Timed Race will be followed by a Kids Fun Run and Costume Contest. Sponsorship information is available by calling (239) 931-9317. Don't miss this opportunity to support families in Lee County!
