2nd Annual Embrace Emma Grace Fundraiser Ride
Organized by: Megan Christina
EVENT DATE Feb 13, 2016
My Goddaughter Emma Grace suffered brain damage during birth that resulted in multiple health diagnoses and learning delays. Despite all of her health and medical needs Emma Grace is truly a joy. Her smile lights up a room and brings happiness to those around her.
With the help of some amazing people and multiple fundraisers Emma Grace has been able to receive cutting-edge therapies and advanced opportunities that otherwise would be out of reach. She has come such a long way, but must continue with these therapies to truly reach her full potential. Many of the advanced and cutting edge therapies that are available are not covered by insurance (not to mention travel fees, medicines, and the list goes on...) so we need your help!
Check out the attached photos to see Emma Grace sit-up all by herself- with the help of her NeuroSuit Therapy at Napa Center (while watching a Taylor Swift music video, of course!). This is just one of the many therapy options that can help her succeed.
On February 13th I will be teaching a Bike:Ride at Biker Barre to raise funds and celebrate Emma Grace with a strength and power themed playlist. Expect to hear some of her favorites-- LOTS of Taylor Swift!
