Walgreens Raises $1 Million For Diabetes Research From Monroe To Indian River Counties

Walgreens' Southern Florida campaign, started three years ago, is led by exec Roy Ripak.

The final $300,000 raised came from the third annual Walk with WALGREENS Family Fun Day and Health Fair, held April 20 at Sun Life Stadium. More than 6,500 people participated in the event, including Miami Dolphins alumni Bobby Harden and Chris Conlin. Corporate sponsors for the day included Listerine, Neutrogena Suncare, Coca-Cola, Frito Lay and Vita Coco.
