Our hearts are with all of those in the path of Hurricane Irma, and we will be thinking of you in the days to come. As we know, disasters can take a heavy toll on the disabled, and we hope that relief efforts are able to serve those most in need.
Many folks are asking if the Working 2 Walk Symposium will still be held in Miami. At this time we have no plans to make any changes. Once the storm has passed and we are able to communicate with the hotel staff, we will send an email update.
Monday is the last day to register for the Working 2 Walk Symposium at Early Bird Rates. Note the upcoming registration fee changes:
Sessions & Fees: Early Bird After September 11
2-day Science & Advocacy Symposium
October 13 & 14 $175 $250
1-day Science & Advocacy Symposium
October 13 or 14 $125 $175
Tuesday, September 12, is the last day to book a room at the Hilton at our group rate. You can still book online, though it may be difficult to reach the hotel by phone or email. Please follow the directions on our Venue/Lodging page.
We have had several inquiries about visits to the Miami Project. There will not be an organized group tour, but if you are interested in arranging your own visit, please follow these directions:
Tours of the Miami Project can be arranged on an individual basis between October 9-11 or 16-20. Unfortunately, staff will be off-site October 12-14 and not able to provide tours on those days. Please call the Education Department at 305-243-7108 and speak with Danielle Cilien.
Best wishes to all,
Your friends at Unite 2 Fight Paralysis
