BENEFITING: THE BELL CENTER FOR EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAMS
EVENT DATE: Feb 12, 2012
The child in the picture is Ezra Hunt. He was born on 1/19/09 with Down Syndrome and suffers from an undiagnosed condition in which his body destroys its own platelets and red and white blood cells. He loves cars, balls, dancing to music and playing with his brothers, Gabriel and Titus.
I am partnering with the Bell Center and running the Mercedes Half Marathon in honor of Ezra. My hope is to spread the word about the amazing work being done at the Bell Center, and ask for your support so that they may continue to provide children and families with the help and hope they need. Thanks for your support for Ezra!

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.
