This photo is of me and my youngest son, Ben. Ben is 12 years old and is truly a wonderful boy. But Ben lives with autism and has a hard time communicating or doing many of the things that a typical 12 year old boy would do. There is no travel soccer or baseball for kids like Ben, and the invitations for play dates, along with the opportunities to form relationships with others, are limited at best.
SPARC has been a lifeline to our family and we want to help maintain it’s services for Ben and his friends for years to come.
On October 15-16, 2013, my team of 3 intrepid hikers crossed 25 miles from rim to rim in the Grand Canyon in 14 hours on foot.
