Charity Partner

The work Camillus House does for the Miami community is incredible. Camillus House has provided humanitarian services to men, women and children who are poor and homeless in Miami-Dade County for 54 years. Established by the Brothers of the Good Shepherd in 1960, Camillus House has grown steadily over the years from a small overnight shelter into a comprehensive system of care for persons who are chronically homeless.

Love to run? Then your sure to love Disney's new release McFarland USA starring Kevin Costner, in theaters February 20, 2015.

Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school, with whom they ultimately bond to build not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.
