Go Over The Edge with Jared!
My name is Jared. I am very lucky to be the husband to my beautiful wife Tara, and father to my gorgeous girls, Lily 10 and Josie 7. Our oldest, Lily, was born with Down syndrome. She is the reason I am going Over the Edge! ...that's a good thing by the way…
Every day we ask Lily to face a new obstacle, conquer a new challenge, or manage a world full of adversity. After a little coaxing, and maybe some bribery, she steps up to these daily challenges. Her victories are hard fought and her demeanor is always positive. For this reason, and in her honor, I am going to rappel 157 feet down the side of the Abraham Lincoln Hotel in downtown Springfield on June 30th, 2018!
My goal is a tough one; I am being asked to raise $1000 to support services that Sparc provides to members in Springfield that share a lot in common with Lily. It is very important to me to see Sparc continue to thrive as one day I hope that Lily will join Sparc's mission to serve in our community.
The people that make up Sparc are our neighbors, our friends, and our community. Sadly, 80% of the Sparc community do not have families, and thus rely on people like you and I to Go Over the Edge in order to provide them with a quality of life that we strive to provide for our own families.
I ask that you consider a donation to help me meet my goal. I promise, once you click that "submit" button, you will experience the best feeling you will feel all day. Don't believe me? Prove me wrong!
