Last year nearly 20,000 supporters participated in the WalkAbout to help raise awareness and much needed funds in support of programs for children and young adults living with autism. This event is made possible through the generous support of sponsors, participants, donors and school, corporate and non-profit teams. All proceeds raised stay in the South Florida community.

Local, national and international companies from various areas of business support the DMF WalkAbout Autism & Expo. Those corporate sponsors include Walgreens, the Miami Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium, Centerplate, Publix Super Markets, Badia Spices, Greenspoon Marder Law, Chase, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza and Everglades Holiday Park. As well as our media partners Comcast, Clear Channel Outdoor, iHeartMedia and Lifestyle Magazine.

Participants will enjoy a festival-infused walk and family fun atmosphere at Sun Life Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins. Musical entertainment will be provided by The Ryan Harris Band, and DJ 1Tre. Kids will have a chance to meet Miami Dolphins players, alumni and cheerleaders, as well as take part in the Dolphins Football Fun Skills Course. Participants will also enjoy the Miami Children’s Museum Imagination Playground, All-Star Events Rides & Games, and giveaways from Walgreens and over 40 WalkAbout Expo exhibitors and vendors. The Publix Hospitality Village will offer delicious food and beverage sampling compliments of Badia Spices, PepsiCo, Blue Bell Ice Cream, CenterPlate and the Produce Connection.

All proceeds raised through this event stay in our local community and benefit The Dan Marino Foundation, Marino Campus as well as participating Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County Schools, and non-profit autism service providers. Last year our top three fundraising school teams included Cypress Bay High School, Baudhuin Pre-School PTO and Pembroke Pines Charter Schools ESE.

“Claire and I look forward to the walk every year as we enjoy spending time with other families,” Dan Marino said. “Everyone from the sponsors to the walk teams made up of schools, companies and individuals are incredible. It’s just the best day ever.”

For more information, please visit www.dmfwalkaboutautism.org.

Ross’ Commitment To South Florida Evident In Stadium Modernization http://www.sunlifestadium.com/news/ross-commitment-to-south-florida-evident-in-stadium-modernization http://www.sunlifestadium.com/news/ross-commitment-to-south-florida-evident-in-stadium-modernization#comments Fri, 16 Jan 2015 20:51:10 +0000 http://www.sunlifestadium.com/?p=4808 reno2It’s been a little less than three weeks since the Dolphins played their last game of the 2014 regular season, and their home looks a lot different than it did back on Dec. 28. 

It also looks nothing like it’s going to look after Phase I of the renovation project at Sun Life Stadium is completed before the start of the 2015 NFL season or after the second and final phase is done in time for the start of the 2016 season. 

While some back-of-the-house construction work began at Sun Life Stadium in late June and has continued since then, the real facelift began Monday, Jan. 5 when workers began removing seats from the upper sections of the building the Dolphins have called home since the 1987 season. 

Over the next 18 months, Sun Life Stadium will undergo a renovation — more like a modernization, actually — at an estimated cost of $400 million, all of it funded by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. 

“Walking out and seeing the seats being removed for the first time was a satisfying realization that it’s actually happening,”?Dolphins President/CEO?Tom Garfinkel said. “A lot of people have put a lot of hard work into this for a long time. Steve Ross’ commitment to making sure that South Florida has a world-class facility for the long-term future for the Dolphins and for marquee global events is the reason that this is finally taking place. 

“Steve has made a commitment to ensuring that the stadium is going to be best-in-class, global entertainment destination, that the Dolphins will be here for a long time, and that Dolphins fans will have as good an experience as anybody else in the NFL in terms of the venue that they go to. He’s made that investment and I?think that says a lot about his commitment to South Florida, to the fans here and to the Dolphins.” 

The Dolphins gave the media a look Friday at the construction progress and also presented computer images to show what the updated Sun Life Stadium will look like once the renovations are complete. 

Phase I?of the project involves changing every seat in the stadium and rebuilding the concourses on the 100 and 300 levels. 

Phase II will involve the installation of a state-of-the-art canopy that will keep as many as 91 percent of the spectators in the shade and protected from the rain, depending on the time of the day and the month, and four giant high-definition video boards, as well as upgrading the concourse at the 200 level. 

Capacity at Sun Life Stadium will go from 76,018 to approximately 65,326 seats in 2015. With the new configuration, sideline seats will start 24 feet closer to the field. 

Garfinkel said everything involved in the modernization of Sun Life Stadium was done with one goal in mind:?to improve the fan experience. 

“Certainly the most important thing, to Steve and to everyone else in the organization, is bringing back the proud winning tradition of the Miami Dolphins,”?Garfinkel said. “But we are also trying to provide the best experience in the stadium itself, including being able to provide shade to fans, particularly on those very hot September 1 p.m. starts; secondly, bringing the seats closer to the field and having it feel intimate like a football stadium and not like a multi-use stadium; and third, really studying and working hard at trying to solve the traffic challenges that we’ve had in terms of people coming in and out of the stadium, those are the three biggest priorities with the stadium.” 

The Dolphins also are hoping to increase their home-field advantage by making Sun Life Stadium louder. 

“We did a lot of sound studies,”?Garfinkel said. “One of the goals was to try to make it as loud as we can. So we wanted the acoustics to keep the sound in the stadium as opposed to absorb the sound. With the roof canopy, it actually bounces the sound back down. It will be a very loud environment in here when the fans are loud. And that was important. I don’t know that we can ever duplicate or replicate the environment at the Orange Bowl. The Orange Bowl was a unique, special place, but certainly to try to make this as intimate and loud as we can was something we took a very hard look at.” 

With the modernization, the hope is that Sun Life Stadium can attract high-profile events, such as the Super Bowl, the College Football Championship or one of the two semifinals, as well as continue to play host to international soccer events and concerts. 

The next Super Bowl available is the one in 2019, with NFL?owners scheduled to vote on the site in May 2016. 

Garfinkel said his confidence level was “very high” that Sun Life Stadium will now be competitive with other new venues when bidding to host marquee events in the future. 

“Historically, to take the Super Bowl as one example, there were four or five venues that hosted the vast majority of the Super Bowls for years and years, us being one of them,”?Garfinkel said. “Over the last decade or so, the competition has increased greatly with new stadiums, facilities opening throughout the country, so in order to be competitive in those environments, we needed a state-of-the-art facility. There’s no better place to hold those types of events than South Florida, and now we’ll have a competitive stadium environment that allows us to be able to compete for those events.” 

With the reconfiguration of the seating structure at Sun Life Stadium, all Season Ticket Members will be selecting new seats this offseason. 

There will be new seating options in 2015, such as the 100 level Corner Terraces, the Field Club, and the 72 Club. 

As for the actual seats that have been removed for the past two weeks, Garfinkel said approximately 3,000 were salvageable and they will be auctioned off, both among Season Ticket Members and the general public, with details on the auction to come later. 

In addition, Season Ticket Members who renew this year will receive the seat backs that were salvageable and whatever seat backs are left over also will be made available through an auction.
