The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired recently held its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at the organization’s Academy Playground. This holiday tradition, supported by the South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad, saw 45 students participate in the event.

President and CEO Virginia Jacko emphasized the importance of inclusivity for children with vision disabilities during a speech at the event. She highlighted how traditional activities like Easter egg hunts often exclude visually impaired students, leaving them out of important social experiences. The Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allows both visually impaired students and those without vision disabilities to join in the festive tradition using their sense of hearing.

The South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad sponsored and assisted with the event to ensure all the beeping eggs were functional for the students at the Miami Lighthouse Academy. In addition to finding eggs, students also received Easter baskets and had the opportunity to interact with a police robot during the event.
