The Island Inn on Sanibel is proud to announce that we are a Silver Sponsor of the F.I.S.H. (Friends In Service Here – the human services organization on Sanibel and Captiva) 10K Race on Sanibel Island.

This will be the first time that Island Inn has taken a sponsorship in the race which will take place on Sanibel on Saturday, October 13th starting at the Sanibel Community House.

The FISH 10K race will begin at 7:30am at the Sanibel Community House, and will once again follow a marked 10K circuit around the island, returning to the Sanibel Community House for the finish line. There will also be a trade fair, which is aimed at the runners, their families and friends, as well as refreshment tables and water stations around the island for runners.

More than 48 island businesses and organizations, including the Island Inn, have sponsored the 10K this year, and over a 120 people have signed up to volunteer to support and execute this great event. The 10K is the main fundraising event for F.I.S.H. this year; they hope to raise a significant amount of money.

The FISH 10K race is expected to attract more than 400 runners this year – last October’s race saw perfect weather for this event and the FISH 10K saw 385 runners. We hear that this year’s forecast predicts ideal running conditions again for October 13th.

Island Inn will be offering a place to charge up for the race and relax after the big run to all of the participants and their families on Sanibel.

The Island Inn would also like to wish all the runners luck and thank them for their support for F.I.S.H. See you at the finish line!
