We are all about reaching out and touching people. We are about
building a community of people that care about the issues of paralysis.
Yesterday in our office we had the perfect example of how well it is working.
(Watch the video of their visit!
One of our board members, Henry Stifel (who told us that day marked 27
years since his accident), brought some young visitors to the home
office. Scotty McGraw, age 10 and
in the 4th grade, and Teddy McGraw, age 7 and in the 2nd grade, and
their parents came in to present a check.
Henry had visited the Pingry School in Short Hills, NJ
not too long
ago, where he got the attention of Scotty McGraw. After learning more
about the problems facing people living with paralysis, he and his two
brothers, Teddy and David (age 12 and in 6th grade), along with Teddy
and Jamie Zoellner (age 11, 5th grade, and age 9, 3rd grade
respectively), got to work raising money for the research we support.
Back on February 6th, the school held a dress down day, where kids pay to not have to wear their nice clothes to school, to raise money for the Reeve Foundation. We can't thank the kids and their teachers enough.
PS: Your school can raise money too. Check out our Team Reeve Center
