The Miami Chapter was established in 1992, and is currently led by Volunteer Regional Director Alicia Bolanos.
This was the first volunteer Chapter to begin grassroots efforts of raising funds and awareness for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. The Chapter has hosted many events including wine tastings, happy hours, walk & roll a thon and the signature annual Block Party.
In an effort to enhance the research efforts of the scientists at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, The Buoniconti Fund established volunteer Chapters in cities throughout the country. These Chapters are an important element to reaching The Miami Project’s goal — a cure for paralysis.
