The Village of Palmetto Bay will celebrate Jonathan’s Day: Fun in Palmetto Bay on Saturday, Dec. 9, and everyone is invited.
The fun-filled event will bring families and friends together to meet one another and learn more about available community resources to help kids with unique abilities. There will be games, food and even a 2K Fun Run/Walk. Interested participants may pre-register online for a discounted registration fee of $15. Same day onsite registration also is available for $20.
The Village of Palmetto Bay is committed to fostering inclusion in the community by implementing and promoting positive programs that benefit children of all ages and all abilities.
In its second consecutive year in Palmetto Bay, this day of inclusion and acceptance is named after South Florida’s very own Jonathan Mizrachi, the 12-year-old son of a CBS4 News employee. Despite being autistic, Jonathan’s fearless attitude toward life defines him much more so than his condition, and his exceptional outlook is something to be celebrated.
The event serves to connect parents, friends and families to resources and information that enrich the lives of children with unique abilities in a fun and celebratory outdoor environment.
Palmetto Bay recognizes the support from the University of Miami-Nova Southeastern University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (UM-NSU CARD) and the Association of Agencies (AOA), along with that of CBS4 News. These organizations are key service providers for individuals and families with unique abilities, and they continue to pledge their commitment to these families by supporting events such as Jonathan’s Day.
The event will take place at Coral Reef Park, 7895 SW 152 St., from 8 a.m. until noon. Everyone is welcome to Jonathan’s Day: Fun in Palmetto Bay — all kids, all abilities, all ages. Just come prepared to have a great time.
