The proceeds of this event will go towards creating access to therapies and treatment for children with disabilities, with the goal of maximizing potential, thereby reducing the risk of institutionalization (which carries an average price tag of $340,000 annually per child), a reality which occurs when children become too heavy for parents to lift them. Quality therapy enables children to become weight-bearing, allowing them to help with their transfers, thereby greatly reducing this risk.
