In 1985, Barth A. Green, M.D. and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti helped found The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis after Nick’s son, Marc, sustained a spinal cord injury during a college football game. Today, The Miami Project is the world’s most comprehensive spinal cord injury research center, and a designated Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.  The Miami Project’s international team is housed in the Lois Pope LIFE Center and includes more than 250 scientists, researchers and clinicians who take innovative approaches to the challenges of brain and spinal cord injury.  Committed to finding a cure for paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury and to seeing millions worldwide walk again, the Buoniconti family established The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis in 1992, a non-profit organization devoted to assisting The Miami Project achieve its national and international goals.

The Coastal Conservation Association Florida (CCA Florida) is a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit marine organization working in an advocacy role to protect the state’s saltwater marine resources and the interests of saltwater recreational anglers. Comprised of 33 active chapters from Pensacola to the Keys, we support strong resource-based law enforcement, access to the resource for recreational fishing, and strong and fairly balanced fishery regulations to protect state and federal fish stocks. Each year chapters are added when conservation and sport fishing enthusiasts in local communities organize to play a more active part in conserving their marine resources and bring attention to marine conservation issues.

CCA has been active in virtually every national fisheries debate since 1984 and has participated productively in state and federal fisheries management issues for more than two decades. CCA continues to operate as a three-tiered organization, affecting issues on the local, state and national levels. CCA’s grassroots network and unique combination of membership, fundraising and advocacy have resulted in positive changes on all levels of coastal marine conservation and management. When called into action, the impact of CCA’s grassroots machine is unparalleled. Join CCA now at www.joincca.org
