WELCOME TO TEAM CYPRESS BAY'S PAGE!
THE DAN MARINO WALKABOUT AUTISM & EXPO IS HERE AGAIN
TEAM CYPRESS BAY has been a PROUD participant in this great event for several years. As a school that boasts 4800 students (including a population of students with Autism), we are once again working hard to support the ESE Programs at the Bay! Most public schools have limited resources to address the needs of this population, and this Walkabout is a great way for the school to be the direct repicient of a grant funds from the DMF Foundation. Twenty five (25%) of the money we raise comes back to our school's ESE Department, and in addition, the Dan Marino Foundation's efforts and money raised stays in our local communities!
Please join our team and help us show support for our peer-students at the Bay, and also, to once again be the TOP FUNDRAISING K-12 SCHOOL TEAM. We are joining forces with our community partners to make this happen! Every donation helps!
The Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism & Expo, brought to you by Walgreens, presented by Badia Spices, 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 the Autism Community.
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 me 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.
Help Us Make A Difference!
