Madison woke up bright and early to participate in ‘Run Ajax’ for a 1km children’s race in support of Grandview Kids. Madison and Jack receive different therapy every week from Grandview so they were pumped to walk to raise awareness for an organization that has been so important to the family. Grandview Children’s Centre is an independently operated not-for-profit organization. They are the only Children’s Treatment Centre in Durham Region providing specialized programs, outpatient clinical treatment, and support to thousands of children and youth with special needs and their families.
Madison was happy to see her friends Zoey and JR at the walk. They all did a fantastic job and tried their best to walk as much as possible. Madison was scared of a minion character who walked in the race, but when he was out of sight she was able to walk and did great!
They all crossed the finish line, got a medal and then headed to the different activities they had for kids. It was awesome seeing other Grandview families and cheering them on as they all worked so hard to cross the finish line and to celebrate all their successes thanks to Grandview.
Madison loved the baseball activity where she tried to hit the floating ball with a bat.
Jack was Madison’s biggest cheerleader today!
