Edison National Bankers and their families took part in the Ninth Annual Scope for Hope 5K Run and 2-Mile Walk on March 16, 2019. More than 200 runners and walkers participated in the fundraising event, held in Fort Myers at the Century Link Sports Complex at Hammond Field.
“This is such an important event to shine a spotlight on the importance of early cancer screening,” said Bank President Robbie Roepstorff. “We were so happy to have nine runners in the ninth annual Scope for Hope.”
Proceeds from the Scope for Hope benefit 21st Century C.A.R.E. The funds raised will be used for education, screening and treatment of colorectal cancer in Southwest Florida.
“It was so great to have some of our bankers’ children on our team,” said Roepstorff. “Whether running in this fun race, or supporting other wellness and educational initiatives in our community, Edison is committed to helping making Lee County a special place for its youngest generation.”
Edison National Bank is Lee County’s oldest locally owned and managed community bank, serving individuals and business owners with offices in Fort Myers, as well as the Bank of the Islands offices on Sanibel and Captiva. Founded in 1997, Edison National Bank is strongly rooted in the community and actively supports civic and charitable causes through both donations and volunteerism.
