THE STORY:

Dear family and friends,

On February 12, I will be running the 2012 Mercedes half marathon and I will be doing so in honor of Brantley.  Brantley is a 3 year old boy....with a contagious smile.... who has mild cerebral palsy affecting his legs and other fine motor skills, as well as speech delays.  Brantley came to Doug and Dawn Crawford as a foster child after spending his first 10 days of life in the hospital.  At about 6 months of age, he became acquainted with The Bell Center and is still there today.  However, because of the fantastic staff and programs at The Bell Center, it is hard for one to tell that Brantley has any physical delays.  And just this past August, he became a permanent member of the Crawford family and they all struggle to keep up with his active life!  And did I mention just how adorable and full of life he is?  He will make your heart happy!

Through the Service Guild of Birmingham, I've been an active volunteer at The Bell Center since 2008 and each year have the priveledge of working one-on-one with a child alongside a team of therapists.  This is my 2nd year to run the Mercedes half marathon and fundraise in honor of a child.  I ask that you prayerfully consider contributing any amount in honor of Brantley and in support of the many children receiving necessary services at The Bell Center.  It is truly an amazing organization that has affected the lives of many.  Please continue reading to learn more about its mission.

The Bell Center offers early intervention services to children at risk for delay, often within a few days or weeks after birth. Parents often feel a sense of helplessness when they discover their child has special needs; however, the Bell Center staff and volunteers are able to provide them with specific information and encouragement allowing parents to move from a sense of confusion, to a deep pride in their children’s accomplishments and optimism for the future.

Programs at The Bell Center are designed to promote growth in gross and fine motor skills, as well as language, cognition, self-help, and play skills. Each child is evaluated annually, and goals are tailored specifically to the child’s needs. The Bell Center employs a staff of highly qualified professionals including physical and occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, and early childhood special education teachers who work directly with infants and toddlers in many programs while directing the efforts of volunteers who work with toddlers in other programs. 

Thank you for your support!
