My name is Andrew Lydon and in April 2020, I will be running the Boston Marathon for PATH, a non-profit who fundraises for Camp Arrowhead and other special needs programming offered through the Town of Natick. I have volunteered or worked at Camp Arrowhead since 2011 and have never witnessed a place so magical in my life. It is a place where every camper is treated with love and respect.
To me, Arrowhead demonstrates how a town is at its best when it works together. Looking forward, I envision a world where every individual with special needs is included/celebrated for who they are. I believe the path to inclusion begins with supporting existing programs such as PATH who already uphold these values.
I have set the fundraising goal of $6,000 and will personally be donating the first $262 on behalf of my friend, Dougie. Like many of the campers, he motivates me more than words. Thank you for your support!!
(Additional Information on PATH)
PATH: the Parents’ Association for the Handicapped, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) Public Charity organized and incorporated in 1983 for the purpose of raising funds in support of the therapeutic recreational programs offered by the Town of Natick, in particular, Camp Arrowhead and the Skyline Programs. Children, teens and adults with special needs are offered a safe, nurturing environment in which to build physical and intellectual strength, life skills and much-needed personal relationships. Staff, equipment, transportation and training come at great cost. PATH defrays these expenses to keep the programs affordable and thereby available.
