We just returned from a business trip and along the way, we met a group of remarkable people. While we were in South Florida, we were generously given a tour of Shake A Leg Miami, a great organization (from their website) "that helps children and adults with physical, developmental and economic challenges; liberating them from the realm of imagination into the realm of experience." We also enjoyed the boat ride on the bay as well, where we stopped and saw Eco Island.
We met Harry Horgan, CEO and Co-founder who was paralyzed as a young man, and is now helping disabled kids feel the freedom of the sea. Recently featured in People Magazine "Heroes Among Us". An active sailor, Harry Horgan 49, paralyzed from the chest down weeks after graduating from college in 1980, wanted to help others feel good about themselves.
Today, through his nonprofit Shake-A-Leg Miami, Horgan and the 24 person staff and additional 250 volunteers teach over 3,000 physically and mentally disabled kids and adults each year. The programs are free for special-needs and low-income participants and range from sailing and kayaking (on handicapped-accessible vessels) to marine science classes.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Harry, photographer and author, Susie J. Horgan and their son Eli, Ashley Sullivan, Director of Education and Vocation, Jared Bistrong, Multimedia Manager, Meredith Bass, Director of Water Sports, Betsy Cox who oversees Grants and Development, Tracy Towle, Director of Public Relations, Marketing and Communications and all the great kids who were attending the last day of summer camp!
We should have some photos soon, but please check out this great organization. We were honored to have such a great experience and meet people with such dedication.
Everyday, the Shake A Leg organization empowers and improves the lives of literally thousands of people.
Visit the Shake A Leg Miami website to read more about this amazing group of people that we hope to help raise awareness and offer any help or assistance to them in any way.
