Keller Williams supports breast cancer fundraiser

Keller Williams Platinum Realty in Spring Township was proud to support the second Miles for Maria on Aug. 13, which included a 5K run and 1-mile fun run.

The event is held in honor of Maria Carannante, sister of Keller Williams agent Gabriella Calloway. Carannante was 31 when she died of metastatic breast cancer in 2021.

“We chose a run to honor Maria because when it comes to breast cancer, you have to fight for a change and a cure,” Calloway said. “When you’re running, you have to fight through discomfort, just like those battling the disease.”

More than 250 runners came to support the cause, raising more than $7,500 for METAvivor, including 23 Keller Williams agents and their family members, which came as no surprise to Calloway.

“Keller Williams is a family,” she said. “We are a competitive industry, but at Keller Williams we work together and support each other not only professionally, but personally. We truly value each other. Having my team join me at the second annual Miles for Maria meant the world to me.”

Calloway was the 2022 recipient of the Keller Williams Platinum Realty Dee Abreu Shaughnessy Fighting Spirit Award.

METAvivor is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of advanced breast cancer and equity in research and patient support. It solely funds metastatic breast cancer research.

“The agent turnout at the second annual Miles for Maria is a true display of the culture at our business,” said Susan McFadden, operating principal/owner at Keller Williams Platinum Realty. “At Keller Williams we don’t just talk about culture, we show we care every single day. Our agents supporting this cause that is near and dear to Gabriella’s heart is a perfect example of seeing our culture in action.”
