It’s a sad fact that many disabled children are less likely to take part in traditional leisure activities and less likely to interact with peers except in school. Shake-A-Leg Miami takes full advantage of its beautiful location on Biscayne Bay to provide people with disabilities and their families a safe, encouraging environment in which they can “have fun, be inspired, develop friendships and launch dreams.” They have created a community where “kids are helping kids” with paddling, boat rides and land-based activities. They also regularly launch their world-famous specialized sailboats that allow the disabled to get out and enjoy a sport they otherwise would have no access to. They also have programs designed to help adults and opportunities for high school volunteers; ShakeALegMiami.org.
In an island built on diversity, ideas and perspectives from around the world, outstanding Latino Key Biscayners showcase their Hispanic heritage with pride.
With the sun high up in the sky and the temperatures soaring, a surprisingly scorching social season emerged after years of pent-up excitement.
