Probably our favorite charity, this local hospital helps an incredible amount of local children and families who otherwise would not receive assistance. Every year we host a charity car show that benefits the CDTC and honor a selected young child requiring that extra boost of love and care in their recovery. In addition to being a CDTC transformer, (professional business people donating monthly to the CDTC) Scott is also a volunteer when needed for various activities and events.
Established in 1983 as the follow-up program of the state’s Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center system, the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) has grown to be one of the largest children’s agencies in South Florida, serving over 10,000 children and youth annually. The Center’s focus has always been to provide medical care, case management, social services and other types of intervention to children and adolescents with chronic illnesses and development disabilities and to provide support and education to their families. CDTC is a nationally-recognized “Center of Excellence,” offering a unique system of care for infants, children and youth with chronic illnesses, disabilities and developmental delays.
Since 2002 we have participated in this annual car show and charity event raising hundreds of thousands for the families of the fallen heroes of 9/11. More recently a portion of the money has been allocated for various wounded warrior projects and wounded heroes requiring special needs. If you too are a car enthusiast and want to partake in this annual event, don’t hesitate to send us an email! For more information and to see more sponsors, you can follow the 9/11 Patriot Run on Facebook @911PatriotRun
As the former Mustang Car president Scott has been the lead car and sponsor for several years of the run. Look for us at the next event! #RemaxKaplan #TeamKaplan
Combining the passion of motorcycles and kids in need we participate every year in South Florida’s largest toy drive donating time and money and of course toys to children in need. More than 30,000 motorcyclists and double that amount of people are expected to take part in the “28 th Annual South Florida President’s Council (SFPC) Toys in the Sun Run” presented by the Mardi Gras Casino. Proceeds benefit the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation, Hollywood, Florida. Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is one of the area’s leading pediatric care hospitals, offering comprehensive health services and programs in an atmosphere that is child-friendly. An all-new facility opened in July 2011 in Broward County thanks to the support of events such as the SFPC Toys in the Sun Run, which since adopting the hospital, has raised over $15 million to benefit the facility. If you would like to attend this even in December please contact us now; Otherwise, you can do your part and donate directly through this link. Looking to Donate To The Toys in The Sun? Click Here!
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a program to provide comfort items to wounded service members has grown into a complete rehabilitative effort to assist warriors as they transition back to civilian life.
The program provides long-term aid through a wide range of complimentary programs designed to give ongoing support and innovative approaches to meet the needs of warriors and their families. Their programs are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.
With close friends and family who have suffered from their time in service this is a project close to our hearts. Looking to offer your support? Click Here
Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open, and along with your help we are doing our part to ensure they always will.
