Welcome to Royal Palm Beach Elementary's page for the
2017 DMF WalkAbout Autism & Expo, brought to you by Walgreens, presented by Badia Spices!
The Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism & Expo, will be held Saturday January 21, 2017 at Miami Dolphin Stadium in Miami, Florida. This is a great opportunity for us to work together and make a difference in the lives of those touched by autism. Proceeds raised through this effort will support local South Florida organizations, including hundreds of participating local schools as well as The Dan Marino Foundation. What is really important to us is that all money raised here, stays here in South Florida!
Why we need your help:
There is no known cause or cure for autism. It is the fastest-growing developmental disorder, and according to the Center for Disease Control, 1 in 68 children in the United States have autism. Currently,83% of adults with autism are unemployed which is a startling statistic! That is why I am asking for your support. Monies raised will provide much-needed resources to our community-based programs, services, and schools.
In addition to this, 25% of what we raise goes directly back to Royal Palm Beach Elementary's Autism Classrooms.
Help Us Make A Difference!
