2015 Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism Fundraiser

by Jan 25, 2015

HDS once again joined the Cypress Bay High School Lightning Team to raise funds in support of the Dan Marino Walkabout Autism event, January 24th, 2015.  HDS has participated in this fundraiser since the very 1st DMF Walk-About-Autism.  For the past couple of years, HDS  merged its team with the Cypress Bay High School “Team Lightning”, in order to make an even greater contribution.

HDS has as established relationship with the school via the CBHS’ ESE Programs, and has mentored special needs students at the HDS workplace The school’s ESE department is eligible to receive 25% of the funds raised as a direct grant, making the effort even more special, allowing them to acquire much needed equipment and supplies.  Katherine Gilson-Miranda,  is the daughter of Cristina Miranda, founder of The HDS Foundation, Inc., and also a student at Cypress Bay.  This year not only did our Team win the top K-12 Public School in Broward County Top Place raising $13, 883.04, but Kate also was the top fundraiser in the entire event, individually raising $11,958.00.  Kudos to all of our Team members, family and friends who support this walk each year!  And thanks to all of the people who
