Stroll and Roll 2016

Today, we strolled and we rolled for Easter Seals! This was the 5th annual Stroll and Roll, and our family has participated every year! (I wrote about previous years HERE and HERE.)

The Stroll and Roll was developed as a fundraiser for Easter Seals, and also as a way to bring together a community of families, parents, caregivers and volunteers, all united by a common goal - to love and support children and youth with disabilities.

It is a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by people who "get it". Moms and Dads, siblings, grandparents, teachers (Brennen's awesome teacher came today!!) and friends, offering support and encouragement because they love our children. It is hard not to. These kids are amazing, and I am so grateful to be blessed with such a wonderful support system who allow us to live this life in the best way we can.

I am thankful to everyone who sponsored Brennen this year. Really. Thank you!! All money raised goes directly into Easter Seals programs and services for persons with disabilities, and those programs are life-changing. We know from experience. Brennen has been involved with Easter Seals since he was very young, and I can't say enough about the quality of the programs and the opportunities that are made available to our children.

Here are some photos from today!

Thank you again to everyone who sponsored Brennen, and for all of your support over the years. Life is a journey, and we have come a long way in learning about challenges, acceptance, and most of all, love. Thank you for being part of our journey. For listening and contributing and caring.

If you would still like to donate to Easter Seals, you can do so HERE.
