Photo of the Week: ‘Hug the Lake’

This week we have a series of photos from Wednesday’s Hug the Lake event presented by Random Acts of Kindness. Students joined hands around Lake Osceola in celebration of Earth Day. The annual event recognizes the importance of preserving the unique environment of Coral Gables. This year, president-elect Julio Frenk, his wife Dr. Felicia Knaul and their daughter Mariana joined President Shalala in “hugging” the Lake.
