United Cerebral Palsy Students Visit Bayside Marketplace, Hard Rock Café & Ride the Thriller Speed Boat

The group at Bayside Marketplace in
downtown Miami, where they ate at
the Hard Rock Café and went on a
Thriller Miami speed boat ride.
Students from United Cerebral Palsy of Miami's (UCP) Transitional Learning Academy and adults from the Adult Day Training Program recently had the opportunity to go to Bayside Marketplace to take a fast paced cruise on Thriller Miami's speed boat. This power catamaran boat takes attendees on a 45 minute off-shore adventure for the ultimate sightseeing experience on the waters of Biscayne Bay, South Beach, Fisher Island, the Miami Gold Coast & Key Biscayne. These tours cover three times the area as compared to other tour vessels, so the group could see Miami from a whole new perspective. 

The event was made possible by the coordination and generosity of Ira Strickman, with the owners of Thriller Miami Speedboat Adventures, George Hall and Charles Keith. Ira also contacted his friend Gonzalo Del Rio, manager of the Hard Rock Café in Bayside Marketplace, who donated a scrumptious lunch to the group following the thrilling boat ride.   

Some of the student's parents were able to take the day off and accompany UCP on this fun adventure.  Denise Hirshon, a mother who attended the field trip said: "Please let all involved know how grateful I am for their kindness and generosity. Everyone had a good time! I could see it on so many faces."
