Danielle Reidy - REMAX

When I first met Mindy, there was something about her that resonated with me long beyond our brief time spent together. It is not every day that you have a chance to meet someone with a passion and drive like hers. I immediately knew she was who I would align with when the time came that I could give back in an impactful way. As I reach my third year as a Realtor, my business has grown to a level that enables me to consistently contribute to bettering others. Having previously worked as a Healthcare Recruiter, I understand and appreciate the end goal of what Pathways does and remain in awe of the concept. Putting people to work despite any obstacles is both fulfilling and challenging. The hope you instill for the future of your clients is a gift like no other. My goal is to support a local non-profit to affect a positive outcome in your community.

As an Ambassador, I intend to provide support by sharing the details of your commitment with my network of friends and colleagues, and through various efforts to raise awareness of your Mission, encouraging donations, contributions, and potential for developing additional Ambassador affiliations.

Recovery Through Repetition

Our mission is to connect those in the recovery community through a shared passion for fitness, fellowship, and service. These three pillars address the physical, emotional, and spiritual components of our three-fold disease. Our intention is to create a safe and supportive environment for anyone affected by addiction. RTR is a home away from home. We provide a range of workout classes and opportunities for community involvement, open to anyone. We aim to be an example to the community of what recovery looks like, through bringing together a diverse group of individuals committed to doing the next right thing. The disease does not discriminate but we do recover. We seek to identify and support individuals with an enthusiasm for a career pursuit, fitness or otherwise, by providing scholarships for certifications and personal development. Our hope is that these individuals will use this opportunity to not only thrive personally, but also pay it forward. Whether attending a yoga class to further self-awareness, engaging in a HIIT class to release endorphins, or participating in a volunteer outing to give back, we repeatedly emphasize the principles of love, unity, and service.

Mental Wellness Networking Alliance

MWNA holds a vision of a world where mental and physical wellness are equally vital. Our mission is to educate our community about suicide prevention and break the stigma of mental health challenges, providing resources to those seeking help is essential to what we do. Shortly after the second teenager was lost to suicide in the aftermath of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018 that rocked the communities of Coral Springs and Parkland, Florida, Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook formed a mental wellness networking alliance with several other community leaders. As he had lost his own mother to suicide when he was 23 years old, he felt compelled to do something for and with the community in order to save lives and promote awareness of mental health resources in order to break the stigma that’s often associated with getting mental help.
