BENEFITING: THE BELL CENTER FOR EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAMS
EVENT DATE: Feb 12, 2012
As many of our friends and family know this is running the Mercedes Marathon relay is something our family does every year in February. This year, we start our fundraising as our family faces its own uncertain financial future due to Synovion's recent decision to eliminate Brian's division and their entire slaes force. . However despite our own anxieties about the futuer , we know that they are nothing compared to those a family faces wihen raising a specials needs child. This year we will run in honor of T.j. Clemmons , an adorable 2 year old with Down Syndrome. As is typical with many children with Down Syndrom, T.J has had some medical issues that his single mother has had to help him over come. She found guidance and direction at The Bell Center as well as encouragement and support. This program is vital to families in the Birmingham area and offers more to families than just early intervention therapy promoting growth is areas of development. It also provides hope, support and encouragement.
As we all count our many blessings and appreciate the gifts we receive during the holiday season , we hope you will all consider donating to our team and give T.J and his family the life long gift of early intervention!
