The Miami Chapter was established in 1992, and is currently led by Volunteer Regional Director Erika Forbes.
This was the first volunteer Chapter to 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.
The Miami Chapter hosted its signature street party, 10th Annual Block Party, presented by Hillstone Coral Gables and SigEp FIU Alumni on January 19 in the heart of downtown Coral Gables. The event featured grilled delights from Hillstone, South Florida’s finest craft beer, desserts, live music and a DJ, an auction, and NBC6 Anchor Roxanne Vargas as our emcee. Proceeds benefit the spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury research at The Miami Project. View our photo gallery.
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.
