FLORIDA - Saturday, thousands of Floridians will be walking 825 miles of shoreline to show the world - our beaches are safe, sound and beautiful!
Hundreds have already signed up to walk Lee County's 47 miles of beaches. Between sunrise and 11 a.m., each person or team will snap pictures showcasing their mile. Then, they'll upload them to the Visit Florida website for all the world to see.
"It's going to reach the world and tell them our beaches are in wonderful condition and we're ready to have everybody come back and visit us," United Way's Kim Berghs said.
To sign up, visit VolunteerFlorida.com or call Berghs at the United Way at (239) 433-2000, ext. 260.
