On Saturday, May 10th it’s the PNC Bank Miles for Moffitt 8K/5K/1 Mile/Wheelchair and Kids Dash with Raymond! Each year, the race awards grants directly to Moffitt cancer researchers to help further their studies.

On this week’s edition of the Current, Roxanne Wilder speaks with Dr. Susan Vadaparampil, one of the many cancer researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center who has received a research grant from funds raised at the Miles for Moffitt event.

Dr. Vadaparampil was curious as to why so many breast cancer patients at Moffitt were not receiving genetic counseling. She was awarded $25,000 from Miles for Moffitt to help find the answer. It turns out many women don’t understand the importance of genetic counseling and testing. This is just one example of how Miles for Moffitt supports vital cancer research in the Tampa Bay area.

It’s not too late to register here.

The American Soldier Exhibit is here at the St. Petersburg Museum of History. It’s a one-of-a-kind exhibit and will be here until July 13th. Roxanne Wilder talks with Scott Macksam, Major Retired US Army and Board of Trustee at the St. Pete Museum of History.

Scott says he first saw this exhibit while he was visiting Fort Knox three years ago and wanted to bring it to the Bay area.

This exhibit travels the county and has drawn in over 1 million visitors. Viewing the exhibit will leave museum patrons with lasting memories, as it displays the real emotions of our service members since the Civil War to today’s operations.

And find out about a terrible loophole in Florida law that affects condo ownership. Right now, as many as 10,000 units are in jeopardy of having their condominium associations terminated and being converted to apartments, forcing owners from their homes and leaving them in debt. What can you do, if you’re a condo owner, to prevent this?
