Dear family and friends, We hope you can support us as we raise money and partake in Game Changers on March 5, 2016! Game Changers is a basketball marathon to raise money to help local families who are affected by disabilities go to family retreats hosted by Joni & Friends of Greater Philadelphia. Families with a disabled child rarely get a break from the daily grind, and J&f Family Retreats gives them a chance to kick back, recharge, and enjoy each other among other families who "get it". The disabled kids each have counselors to help them enjoy all the fun of summer camp, while parents and siblings are also treated to swimming, hiking, canoeing, and singing around the campfire with s'mores. If you'd like to learn more about Joni & Friends of Greater Philadelphia, please go to their website, http://www.joniandfriendsorg/greater-philadelphia. We want to do what we can to help those around us. We hope you can too. Thank you, Anne and Anthony.
