MAJOR SPONSORSHIP FOR THE UNDERLINE
Plans for the upcoming year include funding for “THE UNDERLINE”, a ten-mile linear park that will stretch from Brickell City Center to Dadeland in Miami-Dade County. Through the efforts of organizer Meg Daly, a magnificent green space has been funded and created for pedestrians, bicyclists, and outdoor enthusiasts. The park runs under the metrorail line with stations along the way for families and Miamians to gather in the natural vegetation and habitat of South Florida. The Foundation will support a “core” section of The Underline which will be completed by 2025. For more information on The Underline or contribute – www.theunderline.org/support
