The Underline – SOMI Magazine Update with Meg Daly
The Underline is the name given to THE project to create a 10-mile urban trail and linear park from the Miami River to Dadeland South.
Friends of The Underline a 501(c)(3) non-profit advocating to transform the underutilized land below Miami’s Metrorail into a 10-mile linear park, urban trail and canvas for artistic expression are gearing up for a busy year full of fun activities and events to keep the community exciting about the future Underline.
Let’s Keep Giving!
Post Hurricane Irma, we witnessed our community mobilize, step up, volunteer and contribute to repair our homes, businesses, streets and parks and slowly reopen. Unfortunately due to the Hurricane, we cancelled a Yoga class at Brickell City Centre and our October bike ride to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. But the good news is we had some free time to volunteer cleaning up parks around the community and encourage our friends to help out too. Thanks to the many volunteers who made us #miamistrong!
Now that everyone is back in the saddle, we have Underline November events that will get you moving, making new friends and making a difference. Leading up to and in support of the Miami Foundation’s Give Miami Day on November 16th, we have two really exciting events you won’t want to miss.
