We are proud of our company’s involvement in the community and many of our agents are actively involved with local and national charities. Every once in a while someone goes above and beyond the call of duty and does something truly noteworthy. I would like to congratulate Terri and Dave Rittenhouse on their efforts to launch a brand new charity called Broward Sea Legs.

What is Broward Sea Legs?
Broward Sea Legs is a non-profit association dedicated to bringing ocean wheelchairs to our local beaches in Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and Deerfield Beach. Ocean and beach wheelchairs, like the Mobi-Chair, are specially designed to assist people down to the beach and into the water who would normally not be able to make such a trip.  Now the handicapped, disabled veterans, seniors with mobility issues and anyone else who needs  help going to the beach can do so with an ocean wheelchair.

The Goal
The goal is to make these chairs available free of charge to those in need, but we need your donations to make it a reality. For more information about Broward Sea Legs or to make a donation please visit the association’s web site. You can make a donation through PayPal or by dropping a check at any of the local BB&T banking locations.
