Help me GO OVER THE EDGE for Lake Area United Way and Tradewinds! !  

Tradewinds Services is partnering with LAUW and has a great team of rapellers! My brother Matthew is my motivation for doing this. Matthew was born with Cerebral Palsy and Hydrocephalus and was given a life expectancy of 5 years old. My family did everything to ensure he had therapy services to aid with his condition and would not accept what the doctors told us. Tradewinds started providing services to my brother at a very young age and still does today. I am proud to say that Matthew will be 42 years old on September 9th! Today, Matthew lives in one of the Supported Living Homes and attends the Adult Day Services program at Tradewinds. He is thriving and doing better than ever thanks to places like Tradewinds! I can proudly say that Matthew is my inspiration and the reason I work for Tradewinds. 

Help me raise money for LAUW and Tradewinds Services so we can continue to make differences in the lives of adults and children with disabilities!
