BENEFITING: MY BRIGHTER TOMORROW INC
I'm running in the Diseneyland 5K as part of the My Brighter Tomorrow team. My Brighter Tomorrow is a non-profit organization that was formed to help children with special needs access the specialized therapy they need that unfortunately, their insurance companies will not cover. I feel very strongly that every child should receive therapy if it is available, whether it is new “cutting edge” or traditional, that will help them with their day to day life.
They are committed to getting children the physical therapy they need. So many children have limited insurance or no insurance. Insurance companies sometimes deny payment for certain types of therapy. Their goal is to work with physical therapists, hospitals, camps and schools to help support these children.
This charity is based in Oakland, which is my hometown.
