You know #22 as an all-star running back, but SFF recently sat down with Reggie Bush to see what he’s all about off the field.

For the past month we’ve posted the #ADayWithReggie contests all over our FB, Twitter & YouTube, and geared up enough fans to start our own football team, but we’re not done yet…

Ambition and Hope for the Future

For as much press and notoriety as the Salute to Education program gets, sometimes what makes it truly special gets lost behind its own success. The stats alone are impressive; 17 years, hundreds of students and computers, and thousands of dollars in scholarships. But the Salute scholarships are really all about the individual recipients, their families, and the impact it has on their lives.

Sweet Escape Sweepstakes

This blog has a section called “Power to the People.” We didn’t call it something like “charity” “community work” or “social causes” because those names don’t communicate the heart of what we do. South Florida Ford is all about empowering people – you. Susan G. Komen’s Warriors in Pink is a great example of this. We’ve supported Race for the Cure for a long time, and have always had a great time doing so. Just take a look at pictures from past events and you’ll see what they’re all about.

We’re continuing our tradition by putting you behind the wheel of a 2013 Warriors in Pink Ford Escape, powered by an EcoBoost engine. Just sign up for the sweepstakes here for your chance to win. Show everyone just how empowered you are when you cruise down the street in your new ride.
