Ellie's 555 Superhero Challenge- Team Superman!
Organized by: Dara White
Ellie is a nine year old girl who suffers from Autism. While Ellie is loved very much by her family, her family struggles every day to create a safe and happy environment for her. Currently, Ellie goes to a wonderful school for autistic children; however, the Summer remains a struggle. Last Summer, Ellie had the opportunity to spend two weeks at Camp Ramapo for Children. Camp Ramapo is a beautiful facility in upstate New York for children with special needs, including Autism. Camp Ramapo offers a variety of activities, but Ellie's favorite activity, by far, is swimming. Ellie's parents were initially worried about how Ellie would do away from home for so long, but she literally took to it like a fish to water! GDS International has generously offered to help fund a longer visit to Ramapo next summer through a charity raising event called "Ellie's 555 Superhero Challenge” : 5 superhero teams will scale 5 of NYC's biggest and most iconic structures on December 9th 2015.
