Ionraic is happy to announce that we are dedicating our 2015 season in support of Footsteps of WNY!
For the 17 million people around the world living with Cerebral Palsy, the dailychallenge of getting from place to place is something that at times can be simplyexhausting. And for some, the thrill of running or participating in sports is something they may never come to know.
Footsteps of WNY, Inc. is a 501c3 not for profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of individuals in Western New York living with Cerebral Palsy. Our mission is to provide charitable assistance to individuals with Cerebral Palsy and their families by directly purchasing medically prescribed orthopedic and therapeutic devices, supports and therapies not covered by insurance.
Since 2013, Footsteps of WNY has been able to provided 25 grants totaling over $33,000 in assisting devices and therapy to individuals in Western New York living with Cerebral Palsy.
One of those grants recently went to young Madison from Clarence, NY – here’s what her family had to say about the assistance she received from Footsteps of WNY –
“We wanted to thank you again for your help in getting Madison’s new chair. She looks great inher shiny new chair and she is so much more comfortable. We are still exploring what it has to offer her in terms of positioning and independent mobility. For the first time she stood side by side with the other students singing in the 6th grade chorus concert.. It was the first time as parents,we’re able to witness this. She sang with such joy and we watched with such pride.This weekend she is going to make homemade pasta sauce with her Nana while standing at the kitchen counter. Thank you for giving Madison the ability to explore her world in a new and better way.”
