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.
Key Biscayners were out in full force this season as a charitable force took hold and the philanthropic spirit was alive and well to the benefit of all those in need of a helping hand.
Just as you would pass down a priceless family heirloom to future generations, inspiring the spirit of giving to all those in your life can set off a domino effect that has the power to change the world.
