Mary Trask - Sparc

Go Over The Edge with Mary! Welcome to my fundraising page as I prepare to go Over The Edge for Sparc on May 13, 2017! I'm Mary Trask, wife of Bob and mom to Katie (23), Jane (22) and Ben (19). Katie and Bob are pictured with me above, celebrating one of Katie's recent Special Olympics Track and Field accomplishments. Obviously, Katie was very excited and happy to have won a medal, but Bob and I couldn't be more proud of her. You see, Katie was born at 25 weeks gestation and as a result has multiple disabilities, including cerebral palsy, epilepsy and developmental disabilities. In this picture she has just won a gold medal in the 400 yard walk-and that's ALL THE WAY around the track! Until this year, Katie had only attempted the 100 yard competition-and that was plenty hard for her-but when asked if she wanted to compete in the 400 Katie said "Yes!" without hesitation! Katie faces challenges that you and I cannot imagine every day of her life. Of course, she does this with family support, but she also does this with support from an amazing local organization, Sparc. Sparc supports more than 400 individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, enabling them to successfully live, learn, work and socialize in the 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. On May 13, I will face a real challenge as I rappel 157 feet down the face of the Abraham Lincoln Hotel! Please help me support Sparc by making a donation to help me reach my goal of $2,000 ($1,000 for me to be able to rappel and another $1,000 for Bob who recently had back surgery and can't rappel) . The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. Spare is a great organization that we fully support. If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter. Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page. Thanks so much for your generosity! Mary

Help me meet my $2000 goal!
