Football Legend Dan Marino Connects With R.E.A.C.H. President Mario Carey
In his brief visit to The Bahamas last weekend, Dan Marino met with Bahamas Prime Minister and other representatives to discuss a possible partnership between the Dan Marino Foundation and whether it could be of assistance to our efforts in The Bahamas to assist children with autism and other special needs. “The Dan Marino Foundation, Inc., a 501(c) 3 organization was established in 1992 by Dan and Claire Marino, motivated by their experiences in raising their son, Michael, who is diagnosed with autism. The Foundation’s mission is “empowering individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities”.”
R.E.A.C.H. Bahamas and the Dan Marino Foundation are organizations with similar missions. R.E.A.C.H. is the Bahamas’ resource and Educational source for Autism and other related challenges in the Bahamas. A non-profit organization they aim to provide parents with comprehensive knowledge and tools in all areas of this neurobiological disorder.” Prime Minister Christie decided to use Marino’s visit to connect him with R.E.A.C.H. president, Mario Carey to discuss possible opportunities between the two organizations and aid in the fight against autism in The Bahamas.
