BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy (BioPlus), one of the nation’s leading innovative specialty pharmacies, sponsored Camp Boggy Creek’s 5th Annual Challenge Ride on September 12th, 2015 in Eustis, Florida. The Camp Boggy Creek Challenge Ride is an annual event that brings communities together to help change the lives of children with serious illnesses. Riders of all levels join in on a day of fun and excitement to support the mission of Camp Boggy Creek which gives their campers the fun and safe camp experience they deserve.
Cyclists chose from several different routes which included 15, 40 or 60 mile distances through Lake County. Several BioPlus employees rode in the Challenge Ride, including Dr. Stephen Vogt, CEO and President, Dr. Nick Maroulis, VP of Specialty Pharmacy Services and Michael Karlesklint, Sales Representative. The BioPlus cycling team raised over $2,200, and together the Challenge Ride raised over $281,190 in its efforts to support Camp Boggy Creek’s mission.
“BioPlus is dedicated to promoting better treatments and cures for complex diseases, and we are very proud to support this wonderful camp that has such a powerful impact on children with serious illnesses and their families,” said Dr. Nick Maroulis. “I am very proud of our team for taking the challenge and assisting in making this fundraiser a success.”
BioPlus also had several volunteers support the camp by participating in three water stops of the 15 mile trail in the Seminole State Forest. With music, loud cheers and colorful decorations, the volunteers brought an exciting energy and support to all of the cyclists and children of Camp Boggy Creek.
About Camp Boggy Creek
Camp Boggy Creek was founded in 1996 by Paul Newman and General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp. Since 1996, Camp Boggy Creek has made it possible for children with serious illnesses to enjoy a camp experience in a safe, medically-sound environment. Located just a short drive from Orlando, Florida, the 232-acre camp serves children ages 7-16 who’ve been diagnosed with chronic or life-threatening conditions.
