On October 13 Westhorp & Associates, Inc. participated in the 2012 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Miami. Organized by the American Cancer Society, the walk is "...a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them."

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
The Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of the Affiliate’s net income goes toward funding grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women. The remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world. The Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Affiliate’s services area covers the Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties.
We at Westhorp & Associates fully support this organization and actively participate in the annual Race for the Cure in downtown Miami. It's a great way to get some weekend exercise and support a good cause.
The Corporate Run in Miami began in 1985 with 1,315 participants. Throughout the past two decades, it has grown to become one of the country's top ten largest road races. Over a decade ago, the 10,000 participant mark was reached and since then, there are consistently more than 20,000 participants in downtown Miami.
This fun, healthy atmosphere always breeds good times as our employees join together in a giant after-work office party, sometimes in collaboration with our industry peers.
The early 1980's marked the beginning of a monumental effort by Miami-Dade County to save Biscayne Bay. The Bay was suffering from pollution its marine environment was in steep decline. Baynanza was created as part of a larger effort to save the bay. Baynanza is more than a community event; it's now a tradition that has transcended two generations throughout its 28-year history.
Baynanza is always a fun and very fulfilling morning for us and the kids. After the cleanup, what a better place than the beach to enjoy a leisurely lunch!
The Miami affiliate of Habitat for Humanity was born in 1989. With a small but dedicated
workforce Habitat for Humanity continued working in rural
South Dade, building Jordan Commons, a model community based on sustainable development
and energy-efficient homes. With 187 completed homes and a community center, the
development is one of the largest Habitat for Humanity communities in the nation.
Habitat communities now exist in Liberty City, Little Haiti, Little
River, Overtown, Highland Park, South Miami, West Perrine, South Miami Heights,
Goulds, Princeton, Homestead and Florida City. Over 800 low-income families have
been able to fulfill their dreams by becoming first-time homeowners and moving into
Habitat homes throughout Miami-Dade County.
The folks at Westhorp & Associates are extremely proud to
be involved with Habitat for Humanity annually. You can see us feverishly doing landscaping,
installing roof shingles, or happily painting during the annual Blitz Build,
the Women's Build, or any other random time of the year.
Westhorp & Associates is proud to contribute to the following charities and organizations:
