The Marlins, the Mermaids and Billy the Marlin are doing all the good.
More than 1,200 mentally and/or physically challenged athletes will participate in the event sponsored by the North Miami Beach Optimist Club in memory of David L. Singer. Volunteers will receive free commemorative Special Olympics T-shirts, community service letters for all student volunteers and a free lunch.
Some of the special guests scheduled to attend are pro football, basketball, baseball and hockey players; the Miami Heat dancers; the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders; the University of Miami Sunsations; and Sebastian the Ibis; the Florida Marlins Mermaids; Burnie, the Miami Heat mascot; Billy the Marlin of the Florida Marlins; and local TV and radio personalities.
The games will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at North Miami Stadium at Florida International University, at Northeast 151st Street and Biscayne Boulevard. Large or small groups or organizations can register and participate as a unit. Call 305-935-4733.
If you can help out, that would be great and you might even get meet one of the Marlins players or possibly a Mermaid. But if you can't, it is always nice to know that the team you support helps out the community.
