The Toral Family Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing hope and improving the lives of all persons and their families impacted by a brain or spinal cord injury through research, funding, education and access to community resources, volunteered at Miami Children’s Hospital on August 19. Frank Toral, founder of Toral Family Foundation, helped at two areas of the hospital, the Michael Fux Family Center and the Brain Institute, which is the largest clinical neurology program in the country.

The Michael Fux Family Center is a resource for children and families to take a break from the traditional hospital setting. The multi-room facility offers a movie theater, kitchen, art room, computer room, library, laundry room, fitness center and recreational areas for children and their families to enjoy. The Toral Family Foundation delivered meals and art supplies, served breakfast and lunch to the families and center staff, and participated in arts and crafts with the children. At the Miami Children’s Brain Institute, the Toral Family Foundation donated coloring books, toys, and movies, and read to the children. In the hospital waiting rooms, they provided light snacks and other items to families.
