The Emerging Leaders Board’s (“ELB”) purpose is to support Runway to Hope (“RTH”) and its Board of Directors by raising awareness of our collective efforts among a new generation of doers and thinkers. RTH’s Emerging Leaders represent many of Central Florida's top industries and draw from their collective potential to unite behind a common purpose: supporting RTH, the families we serve, and beating childhood cancer.
Through use of digital engagement, networking events, and by donating our time to support the children and families who rely on RTH, the ELB works to engage philanthropists in the Central Florida region dedicated to providing direct support to children and families who have been affected by pediatric cancer in our local community.
Emerging Leaders understand and appreciate the importance of being an active and engaged member of their community. They lead by example, setting the standard for what it means to be an ethical, compassionate, and philanthropic professional.
