BENEFITING: MY BRIGHTER TOMORROW INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 30, 2014
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to run in the Disneyland 5k this summer, and what's even better is that I will be running for charity! The charity I have chosen is called My Brighter Tomorrow, and their purpose is to provide therapy to children with special needs, who have been denied coverage by insurance. This is very dear to my heart, as my husband and I have a son with special needs. Early intervention and therapy has been critical to the progress he has made; there is no doubt in my mind he would not be where he is today without it. We have been blessed that all of his therapy has been covered by our insurance, but I have many friends who have not been as lucky. I cannot imagine the heartache and frustration of being in that position. My Brighter Tomorrow is working to help families who find themselves in that desperate place.
The mission of My Brighter Tomorrow is to provide resources and specialized therapy for children with special needs requirements that their insurance therefore will not cover. Without these resources many of the children are unable to thrive in everyday tasks such as walking, talking in fluent sentences, or even the ability to attend a mainstream school.
Their mission is to provide every child with an opportunity to THRIVE, not just survive. they are a 501c3 tax exempt charitable organization.
