The City of Doral hosted the Autism Speaks Miami walk for the 7th year in a row on April 2nd in Doral Central Park. Over 20,000 walked to help generate funds that fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services.
This year’s Walk Champion, City of Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez, along with Councilwoman Claudia Mariaca and Councilwoman Ana Maria Rodriguez, led the charity walk and recognized Autism Speaks Miami for their important work for this cause.
The Autism Speaks Walk is the largest autism community resource fair in South Florida, providing families with “one-stop shopping” for educational options, therapists, recreational programs, child-friendly activities, and other vital services. The event is made possible by volunteers, autistic individuals, families with loved ones on the autism spectrum, and local businesses.
Doral's support for this cause didn't just end there. On April 4th the community convened at the Doral Government Center to "light it up blue" for Autism Awareness Month. Our Government Center joined other buildings and landmarks around the world that also go blue like the White House.
