I think you all at least knew of our first son Patrick and many of you actually knew him.  He went to the Hope Center as a child in a regular school bus!  Michael and I could never have lived anything close to a normal life without this assistance.  If he were still alive, he would be living in a group home.  The majority of his expenses would be and were paid for by The Able Life Foundation.  This 5K Avondale race is the major fundraiser for the Charles Webb Center, where Patrick would go were he alive.  Without the funds raised by this race, those doors would be closed and many other service for the disabled would simply not be there.  Many parents, like us, would have no alternative for their children.  It's as simple as that.  We need your help -- please join Michael and Ann for the race (stroll, walk, whatever...) on October 8.  Can't make the race?  Click donate on the website and please give as generously as you can.  Team Patrick and the Charles Webb Center need your support!  Thanking you in advance.  Ann and Michael
