    On April 23, to coincide with Earth Day, alumni nationwide harnessed the collective power of their ’Canes Communities in service of the environment and their communities by participating in ’Canes Day of Service. Alumni and friends of the University of Miami showed up in droves to cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, and Los Angeles, to serve some of our most vulnerable people and ecosystems.

    The flagship event was hosted by the Miami ’Canes Community at Virginia Key Outdoor Center, just off mainland Miami, where volunteers participated in shoreline and coastal cleanup, followed by a lunch-and-learn discussion on coral reef restoration with Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science researchers.

    ’Canes in Charlotte partnered with Samaritan’s Feet to outfit children with new shoes and alumni in Atlanta walked to raise funds for Walk MS. In total, 11 ’Canes Communities across the country participated, including Orlando, which will partner with Second Harvest Food Bank to support the latter’s annual fundraising event on May 21.
