THE STORY:

This is our son Wyatt.  He is a happy, beautiful, smart and determined little guy. In the past year Wyatt has begun talking, he says "Momma" and "Dadda" and is constantly babbling trying to tell us what he's thinking.  He also, recently, began walking in his walker, moving it entirely on his own.  He loves books, his remote control Thomas the Tank Engine, teasing us and walking, either in his walker or with assistance.  He also, unfortunately :), loves playing with the TV remove control.

Wyatt was born early, at 28 weeks, a week after he was born we were told he'd had a serious brain bleed.  This bleed led to hydrocephalous (this means that cerebral spinal fluid couldn't drain properly and built up in his head), which required a drain (shunt) to be placed.  The bleed also led to Wyatt's Cerebral Palsy and a visual condition called Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI).  Cerebral Palsy is a condition where the brain has difficulty controlling the movements of the body.  This causes him to have difficulty with movement, his chief motor struggles are with dexterity and trunk control, this makes it difficult to manipulate toys and balance.  CVI presents itself differently in each person but the condition affects the perception of what the eyes see.  Wyatt's CVI causes him difficulty seeing in new environments and it is difficult for him to look directly at people.  Additionally, Wyatt is very nearsighted, to the point he is considered legally blind.

The Delta Gamma Center has been a fantastic source of support and knowledge for our familty.  All of Wyatt's therapists are affiliated with Delta Gamma Center. They've helped us learn the best ways to help Wyatt thrive.  

This is why we are forming a race team, Wyatt's Warriors, to help this amazing organization provide support and knowledge to other families that have had similar challenges.  We would be thrilled to have you run/walk with the team though any form of donation is very much appreciated.

Thank you for your support.  We'll see you on race day!

Clayton, Leah and our little Warrior Wyatt.
