Walk With Me is a family fun walk that helps raise awareness and resources for programs that Easter Seals North Texas provides. You will have the opportunity to walk side by side with the clients you are supporting.
Walk with team NCMA! New Century Montessori Academy will be walking in honor of Ainsli Cheung. Ainsli has been chosen as an ambassador for the walk with me 2016 fundraiser. Easter Seals North Texas has provided services for individuals with disabilities and their families since 1939.
Ainsli Cheung was diagnosed with 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome when she was three years old. Due to problems with her palate, Ainsli was unable to make the sounds necessary for speech. When she turned 5, she had multiples surgeries to correct her palate. The surgery was a success and gave Ainsli the ability to make sounds , but there was a long road ahead. Ainsli had to learn how to speak so that she could use her new voice.
The therapists at Easter seals have worked with Ainsli to give her the tools she needs to communicate with the world around her. She is now a happy 12 year old girl who loves school and having a voice in the world. Thank you Easter Seals for giving her such an invaluable gift. We are so thankful for your services!
