THE STORY:

SEAN GILLIGAN wrote -

Frank Pagliaro, owner of Frank's Wine in Wilmington, is an extremely generous supporter and fundraiser of children's charities - including our annual Run for the Buds event which supports the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware.

I am thrilled to join Frank and the 2016 Frank's Wine Marathon Team supporting another wonderful Delaware-based charity - Exceptional Care for Children.  ECC was founded in 1998 by Jeannine S. Winsness, RN, MSN, CRNP. ECC began as a vision for an improved model of care for medically fragile children. Seeing the need for care that bridged the gap between traditional in-patient treatment and the difficulties of pediatric home care models, Jeannine set about raising the money to open Exceptional Care for Children. Through Jeannine’s perseverance, the concept grew to be an interagency private- public collaboration which includes A. I. DuPont Hospital for Children, Delaware Medicaid, Department of Health and Human Services Developmental Disabilities Division, Delaware Department of Education, ARC of Delaware and others. In the spring of 2004, after careful consideration, the Board of Directors approved a capital fundraising effort. It was with great good fortune that Exceptional Care for Children found both the facility of its dreams, and a generous benefactor, in very short order. Set within 7.7 tranquil acres, the existing facility was virtually perfect and lent itself well to being renovated into a homelike setting. In November of that year, ECC purchased its campus in Newark, Delaware. After raising more than $2.9 million for extensive renovations and working capital, Exceptional Care for Children opened its doors as one of the first facilities in the country to provide skilled nursing, transitional, and end-of-life care.

I am honored to join this fun group of wine drinking runners supporting a great cause.  I will be competing in Steamtown Marathon on October 9th, 2016 with the team.  

I hope you can support my Exceptional Care for Children fundraising efforts as part of this team.  Please click 'Donate to this Fundraiser' button.  Any amount is exceptional.  

Drink. Run. Support.  (not in that order.  well, maybe sometimes)

Sean
