The 8th Annual Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism & Expo

Welcome to the NEW DMF WalkAbout Autism Website
This year, the DMF WalkAbout returned to the field at Hard Rock Stadium!

Families, students, educators, advocates, and community leaders joined Dan Marino, the Marino Family, and The Dan Marino Foundation (DMF) at Hard Rock Stadium home of the Miami Dolphins for the 8th Annual WalkAbout Autism & Expo. The initiative, founded by The Dan Marino Foundation in 2011, affords a powerful and inspiring platform for the South Florida autism community to come together to inspire awareness, raise funds for innovative initiatives and advocate for the needs of people living with autism. Each year this spectacular event gathers close to 10,000 participants who walk together with an ultimate pursuit of inspiring the world to embrace autism acceptance.

Since 2011, over 180 schools and organizations have benefited from the $3,777,941 raised by DMF WalkAbout Teams and sponsors. New adaptive technology, classroom equipment, field trip opportunities, post-secondary and employment services, and much more have been made possible by these dollars.
