…to ESNG’s Trick or Treat Trot 5K and Family Fun Festival.
We are just over a week away from our big event. You may have seen posts, tweets, pictures, videos – you name it – about the event, but do you really know what it’s for? I’m sure if you look, you could find a run/walk that supports a local nonprofit every weekend in metro Atlanta. So, what’s the big deal about this one? I’m so glad you asked.
It’s for the children: Children like Castin receive therapies through our early intervention service, Babies Can’t Wait. Speech and language therapy have given Castin a voice and confidence to become the smart, kind and happy child he is today.
It’s for the community: Our programs and services impact the entire community. Whether it’s health, education or human services, we make sure all community members can do their part to make our community great.
It’s for awareness: It was only 25 years ago that an employer could discriminate against a person because of his/her disability. While that is now against the law, there is so much more we need to do to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to succeed in our community.
It’s for raising money to affect more lives: We provide these programs and services at no charge to participants and their families. They are made possible by generous donations from individuals, foundation and corporate partners. This is an opportunity for our funders to see our work and have our staff and families say thank you!
