Hello Holly’s Buddies!
We are asking for your support for Mary Cariola Children’s Center’s 2014 Walking on Sunshine event.
Holly was born with Cytomegalovirus (CMV) which caused severe brain damage leaving her with profound physical and intellectual disabilities. The virus made her dependent on us for every aspect of daily living…clothing, bathing, toileting, feeding, medicating, socializing and safety.
We are grateful that, for 7 hours a day/ 45 weeks of the year, Holly gets the attention, nurturing, and the most loving environment any parent could ask for. Teachers, Staff, and Clinicians at Mary Cariola provide Physical, Occupational and Music Therapy, Adapted Physical Education, Classroom Activities and so much more.
We have always been in awe of the Mary Cariola staff and that’s why this walk is so important. Funding from NY State Education and School Districts covers the bare minimum. Extra equipment… the air mattress, the angled spoons, the sensory room (which Holly loves so much), musical instruments (which Holly loves even more!), adapted swings etc can be purchased because of this fundraiser.
Won’t you be Holly’s Buddy and support the great work being done at Mary Cariola Children’s Center? Walk with us on September 28th at Walking on Sunshine or make a donation right here…right now……it’s only a click away. Thank You!
