Hi my name is Jace. I am 11 years old and I live in Elk Grove, Ca. Thank you for visiting my fundraising site!
One thing I'd like you to know about me, is that I have OCD, however, OCD does not define me! I'm just a typical kid. I like to have fun, hang out with my friends, and eat cookies & cream ice cream. I also like watching cool videos on youtube, especially Dan TDM, he's my favorite! When I am not drawing you can find me outdoors playing, hiking or on the golf green.
There is something important that I am about to do and I would like to share it with you. Would you please join me and my team to help fight Vamps, my OCD bully and others like me Overcome, Conquer & Destroy OCD on June 10, 2017 at the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk in Sacramento, Ca?
I have set a personal fundraising goal of $11,000 for a couple reasons:
1. Since I am 11 years old, setting a goal of $11,000 made perfect sense to me :)
2. Health care is exepensive for anyone. Throw in an OCD diagnosis, it's VERY expesenise. Did you know on average a person spend $10,000 in healthcare?
A person with an OCD diagnosis requires specialized treatment; therapy (CB & ERP) and treatment costs quickly add up. Alot of times, insurance companies will only cover 3-5 treatment sessions and let me tell you first hand, you need well over 5 treatments when you suffer from OCD. So I want to do my part to help others like me by stopping the stigma, bringing awareness and education people about OCD.
I am thankful me and my family had the access to educational materials, resources and support through the International OCD Foundation. It has been beyond helpful. So please join me and help stop the stigma, bring awareness, hope and funds to support the important programs of the International OCD Foundation!
Please join my team and/or consider making a financial donation and show your support! Together we can reach the $11,000 fundraising goal.
Thank you for supporting me and many others on June 10th as we join together at the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk in Sacramento, California.
