One of the biggest blessings of my life is my darling daughter, Claire.  Claire brings indescribable joy to our family, and huge smiles to strangers.  She is the most beautiful little girl I have ever laid eyes on.  Her hugs will melt your heart.  Oh, and she also happens to have Down Syndrome. 

On September 22, 2018, I'll be rappelling down 345 feet from the Plaza Towers in Grand Rapids to raise money for Easterseals Michigan, which provides programs and services to individuals with disabilities, and in turn, empowers extraordinary individuals to live more independent lives.

My goal is to fundraise at least $1,500, but would love to surpass that goal! With your help, I know that I can do just that.

For nearly a century, Easterseals Michigan (ESM) has empowered extraordinary individuals to live more independent lives. Their story has evolved over time, but their purpose remains the same - Easter Seals Michigan serves and supports people with disabilities or special needs and their families so they can successfully live, learn, work and play in their communities.

Last year alone, ESM helped more than 11,000 people throughout the state of Michigan, and many of those could be your neighbors or friends. Easterseals programs and services touch many in our community, so thank you for your support!

All of the donations that I receive are going to support Easterseals Michigan programs and Services. Easterseals Michigan is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. More information can be found at www.eastersealsmichigan.com

Thank you for your generous support! See you at the bottom!

P.S.: If you know anyone who you think would like to help me reach my fundraising goal in this event, please share my page with them!
