Why am I participating in the 2018 Easterseals/CAI Volleyball Challenge?



Besides the fact that I was chosen to be the 2018 Ambassador, I am participating because I want to help out an organization that I love! My mom is actually writing this on my behalf, because I am mostly nonverbal. However, she knows how I feel about Easterseals and all of my friends there. I have attended Easterseals for about four years now, and I have come to really love it. Every weekday, I get to spend time with friends there. I enjoy having fun with them, and learning from them. They also enjoy learning from me. As my mom has witnessed in my classroom and on my bus; my teachers, bus drivers, aides, and my classmates and I, genuinely care about each other. It is a safe place for me to continue to grow independently. In my own words, this is how I typically describe my day at Easterseals: 
 
"Friends!"      "Dance!"


 
 

Why do I need your help?

As my mom says..."it takes a village..." Easterseals is such a special part of that village. Please help them to continue all that they do for everyone! Thank you!!!


What is the Easterseals / CAI Volleyball Challenge?

For over 30 years, the Volleyball Challenge has raised critically-needed funds to help Easterseals provide exceptional services to children and adults with disabilities so they can achieve their greatest level of independence.

The 2018 Easterseals/CAI Volleyball Challenge takes places on Friday, March 2; Saturday, March 3; and Sunday, March 4 at the William Penn High School, 713 E. Basin Rd., New Casle, DE  19720.

To join in the fun, team captains invite 6-10 individuals to become part of their team to play in a 90-minute rotation on one of the three days of the challenge.

Each team is encouraged to raise a minimum of $1,500. For a team of 10 people, that's a commitment from each team member to raise just $150!

By participating in this event, everyone can help change lives. Here are just some examples:

$150 helps provide physical therapy for a child with developmental delays.

$1,500 helps send a child or adult with disabilities to Easterseals' Camp Fairlee Manor, where they can experience the joys and challenges of a fully-accessible summer camp.

The Volleyball Challenge offers teams a chance to have fun, exercise, win great prizes and meet some terrific new people!
