I don’t know how to tell you this, but I’m kind of a big deal. Ron Burgundy quote aside, I actually do have some great news.
I was nominated and picked to be this year’s recipient of the Maxwell J. Schleifer Distinguished Service Award. Created by Exceptional Parent magazine and sponsored by CVS Pharmacies, this award honors an individual who shows exemplary service and advocacy for people with disabilities. And because of my work with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Mesa Disabled Sports and other various organizations, members of the PCH Foundation thought I would be the perfect candidate.
On June 9, members from CVS and EP Magazine will present me with the award during an on-field, pre-game ceremony at the Arizona Diamondbacks game against the Giants. CVS will also present a check to PCH in my honor.
If you are in town, please head out to the ballpark and support this great achievement. Check back after June 9, for pics from the game.
