Sarah Davis, CBA fund development and marketing officer, accepts a $500 donation from Destin Area Chamber Chairman Amy Perry of Pleat, Perry & Ritchie, P.A.

The Destin Area Chamber of Commerce presented a $500 check to the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance April 8 in appreciation of its assistance during the 2014 Destin’s Superhero Bayou, Bay, & Back 1-Mile Fun Run, 5K Run/Walk, 10K, & Half Marathon. Almost 500 runners competed in the event, now in its fourth year, and the CBA’s assistance was essential during the race and in pre-event marketing.

The CBA is an organization committed to sustaining and providing optimum utilization of the Choctawhatchee Basin watershed. Since the race courses offer sweeping views of the Choctawhatchee Bay and waterways of Destin, the CBA is the perfect partner for the race. The health of the area’s water resources is the foundation of its identity and economy. Be it fishing, tourism, or quality of life, everything revolves around a healthy watershed.
