The Turtle Hospital received a very generous donation on July 3rd, from Milton and Tara Behren and would like to say THANK YOU!
Milton Behrens, from Pompano Beach Florida rides his bike for charity. He entered the Sebring 12/24 endurance ride for charity but decided to do his own fundraiser for The Turtle Hospital. Friends and buinsesses placed side “bets” on how far or how long Milton could bike. Each “bet” was actually being placed to donate to The Turtle Hopsital.
Milton Behrens began his ride smoothly, however he crashed 67 miles into the race. The finish line was 46 miles away. If Milton did not finish, the money for The Turtle Hospital would be lost. Injured, Milton’s strength, endurance and determination pushed him to finish the race and raise $1,500 for The Turtle Hospital.
The Hosptial staff would like to extend an extra special thank you to Milton and Tara Behrens for their generocity and compassion. This donation will have a direct impact on the conservation of sea turtles by helping to feed, medicate and care for our current 41 patients.
