Give Some Special Kids a Very Special Summer

easter seals logoI’m gearing up once again for the Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay. Our team has a new name (The Full Spectrum) but the same mission: to run relay style for 24 hours in support of Easter Seals camps.

Every year, over 200 kids with physical or mental disabilities come to Easter Seals Camp Winfield to have the best week of their summer. Easter Seals aims to create a place that allows campers with special needs to celebrate their abilities, try new things, make friends and have a lot of fun.

Many campers look forward to going to camp all year long –- it’s an amazing place where they focus on each camper’s abilities rather than their disabilities; where independence, self-esteem, and self-confidence are encouraged and supported by camp staff throughout the week.

This cause is very personal for me, as my eight-year-old son has Asperger’s Syndrome and will be attending the camp again this summer. Please sponsor me and help give many more kids the chance to have a great summer camp experience!
