Dreams for Kids, Inc.
October 9, 2012

I first heard of Dreams for Kids about 4 years ago and the first event I took my son to was water skiing. The fears my son has are so multiple and often so unreasonable so naturally I did not know what to expect. It took 5 volunteers over 30 min to coax him onto a modified water ski, who would have such patience. Lucky for me a photographer went on boat to take pictures and captured my son's elated joy upon return. He enjoyed it so very much and was so proud of his achievement. Since then we've been to every water ski event. My son also went snow skiing, again I did not think he'd be able to do it. With the help of two very strong volunteers he went up and down the slope. He loved it so much he did not want to take a lunch break. Since then my son experienced scuba diving, rock climbing, bocci and all sorts of other activities he would never have a chance to experience were it not for Dreams for Kids and for Tom Touhy. We are so grateful for Tom and all the volunteers at Dreams for Kids. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Elizabeth H.
