Today was soooo special! Incredibly special! I was so inspired by the Notre Dame community today. They held a high school student initiated fundraiser today to raise awareness for CP and to recognize the powerful role of animals in therapy plans for kids like Ciaran and Shay. So proud of what I witnessed today!!! The amazing students at Notre Dame Secondary in Burlington raised over $3000 for Cerebral Palsy charities.
Intent of fundraiser was to raise awareness and funds for two non-profit organizations ADS and TEAD where the boys horseback ride -two associations that provide animal therapy to children with special needs.
My favourite part of the day was when the coop student from ND who fell in love w them last year at her placement started balling in front of all the gr 11 and 12 students - when she told them that she just needed them All to know that C and S were just like any if them!!! POWERFUL!!!
Our world is changing people...awareness is spreading slowly but surely...refreshing...and timely!!!!
