Gearing Up for DCCIX


The Keyes Company is once again proud to participate and partner with the Dolphins Cancer Challenge and the University of Miami's Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center to support their mission to find a cure for the many types of cancers that plague so many.


Keyes joined the Dolphins Cancer Challenge for the first time in 2014. The Challenge, which will take place on April 6, 2019, is a fun way to participate in raising funds for cancer research. 100% of the monies raised go directly to Sylvester. So far over $27.5 Million has been provided to Sylvester where the funds are used to make life changing discoveries, providing new and improved treatments and ensuring better outcomes for so many patients.


Participants have the ability to Ride, Walk, Run, be a Virtual participant or volunteer.  There are various routes offered throughout the tri-county area as well as a 5k Run/Walk at the stadium where all participants gather together at the Finish Line.


Thanks to JoAnn Mazzeo, District Sales Manager for Boynton Beach, for her great work as the Keyes team leader.

Our partnership with the DCC is ongoing. If you have questions or need information,


Keyes' Corporate Building Plays Host to Over the Edge

The Keyes Company really does care about Miami’s young people! The 3rd annual Miami Youth for Christ Over the Edge event was hosted by The Keyes Company on a rainy Saturday in late January. 


This year 72 rappelers scaled the building to help stop youth violence through the effective programs of Miami Youth for Christ. Christian Vega of the Brickell office represented The Keyes Company and was among 72 rappelers who scaled the building, raising $160,000. 


“Miami YFC is deeply grateful for our partnership with The Keyes Company and their desire to better our community by investing in our youth,” remarked Executive Director, Bonnie Rodriguez.
