Giving Back and Remembering Doug
By Aaron Schaller, impact Special Kids fundraiser
This event is close to my hearts.
I first heard about the Special Kids Race at a unique time, right after the passing of a special relative. This relative, Doug, had Down’s syndrome and was a very positive influence on our extended family and friends. As I looked into the organization of Special Kids, I realized what a great opportunity to give back in a way that is close to my heart. By forming a team and starting an impact page, I was able to give and volunteer resources for a great cause.
I find comfort in Special Kids.
As I learned more about Special Kids, I realized that the operations of this non-profit organization are very efficient and that our time and money go a long way. I was also impressed with the fact that Special Kids never turns any child away, regardless of the time or financial commitment. However; what comforts me more than anything is knowing that everything at Special Kids is centered on Christian beliefs. I will do my best to continue to participate at Special Kids because I have experienced first-hand what a positive influence people with special needs can have.
I run with friends and family.
I am looking forward to March 21 and, as usual, I have friends and family traveling in from all over the nation to participate in the Special Kids Race.
