EVENT TEAM SCHOONVELD & SCHOONVELD for Els for Autism Golf Challenge
An ordinary (local Chicago-land) family navigates an extraordinary journey of Autism, times four (four children born in four years -- now ages 3/5/5/7). We were pregnant with our 4th child when our only son regressed & was diagnosed with Autism. Over the next 2 years our other 3 children, also each regressed, & are diagnosed at different areas of the Autism spectrum. It was & sometimes still remains unclear why God chose this path for our family. Though our journey into parenthood has not been as we imagined, we are better people for the ways our children continue to teach us wisdom beyond their years. We look to God & the hope of tomorrow for answers to unlock the many doors into the world of Autism. Foundations with vision like the Els Center for Excellence are opening some of those doors. To all those supporting this charity, E. & I give our most sincere thank you on behalf of the entire Autism community.
GOAL By 8/29/11: To raise over $10,000 (through monetary sponsorships) for the Els for Autism Center for Excellence mission!Click here to donate --> SPONSOR TEAM NOW
