George Saavack….YOU are an Ironman (Race Report)
August 20, 2017
The young man pictured is Noah (the one without the swim cap). Noah was diagnosed in the Summer of 2001 with Autism. He had not spoken and he was three and half years old. We started therapy at Heartspring and Noah learned to communicate verbally. Now, Noah is in National Honor Society and will graduate high school in May 2017 all because of the support we receive from people like you.
I will do the training and complete the 140.6 mile Lake Placid Ironman in July of 2017. Will you consider donating...not for me..but for kids like Noah?
I try to raise money for organizations like Heartspring because they do great work in our community and they need our support. I know the money raised can make a difference in children’s lives. This money will help financially support children with special needs and their families who receive services at Heartspring’s Pediatric Services. Often times, even the “best” insurance companies only cover a fraction of medically necessary therapy costs-- making multiple therapy sessions a week costly. Last year, with the help of the Pediatric Services Financial Assistance Fund, 135 children received free or discounted therapies, ensuring the chance to become the best they can be.
