Help Me Raise Money for Phoenix Children's Hospital

I'm a founding member of this great philanthropy group at Phoenix Children's Hospital. The Patient and family Alumni Leadership (PALs) group is philanthropic team of former patients (or family members of former patients) who give back to the Hospital, with the goal of enriching the environment and experience for patients and families.

One of the ways we are helping PCH is by creating a grant that will help fund deserving programs at the hospital. The grant is fully-funded by funds raised by PALs members. I've pledged to raise $500 for our grant process. Help me reach my goal by making an online donation. Any bit helps and is greatly appreciated!

And the Award Goes to... Me!

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.
