Earning Pride and a Paycheck

MIAMI -- Of all the big plays former Miami Dolphin Dan Marino has made in his Hall of Fame career, few have packed the same meaning as this event -- recognizing more than 100 young adults with developmental disabilities. They had all taken part in the Dan Marino Foundation's Summer STEPS 2009 program.
It was the second year for the Summer STEPS program, also known as the Summer Supported Training & Employment Program for Special Needs. Run by the Dan Marino Foundation, and funded by the Children's Services Council of Broward County, the program gives young adults ages 16-21 with developmental disabilities summer work experience.
