EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2015
Thank you for sharing our special day with us. The best gift you could possibly give us, would be to donate to Variety, the Children's Charity of IL -- an organization near-and-dear to our hearts (Amy has served on the board for more than a decade).
Variety the Children’s Charity of Illinois believes every child deserves the ability to lead a full, active life. Through an array of programs and fundraising endeavors, Variety of Illinois is helping give children with disabilities the freedom and independence to live life and fulfill their roles in society. Kids on the Go is part of a national Variety effort to provide support for children and their families in the form of durable medical equipment that they cannot afford or is denied by their health insurance. In many cases, devices like adaptive bikes and special-needs strollers are not covered. Despite their immense physical and therapeutic benefits, insurance may not reimburse this cost because they are not considered to be necessities. Even wheelchairs often can take up to two years to be funded by insurance. As new sports-mobility technologies are created and improved, Variety of IL would like to give even more children with disabilities access these opportunities. Your donation would help do just that.
