The Pensacola Debt Sharks plan to spread awareness and, having met and doubled the goal of relieving $1,000,000 of medical debt, they now plan to raise at least $50,000, which would relieve $5,000,000 of medical debt in the Northwest Florida area through debt buying. So far they have raised over $28,000 dollars to relieve more than $2,000,000 of medical debt.
The Pensacola Debt Sharks were founded in late September of 2016 by Samir Boussarhane and Falen McClellan, two Pensacola high school IB juniors. The students created The Debt Sharks for their community service project and plan to relieve $5,000,000 by raising $50,000 for RIP Medical Debt, who will use the money to relieve the debt of those who cannot afford to pay it in the Northwest Florida area. This project is the first of its kind to be done in the local area and is planned so that it holds a large impact on the community. Stay tuned for events and ways to help!
