In a previous blog blog, we mentioned that the Drop Dead Drift Corporation was holding a fundraiser for Astonished! on July 26.
We have to say, they came, they saw, they conquered AND overwhelmed us with their generosity!Here, is a truly great group of people looking to get involved and give back to the community. The day was awesome – the races were entertaining, the people were lovely and even the weather cooperated! Everyone from Astonished! had a lot of fun and we could tell that everyone else was having a lot of fun, too. To round out the day, Drop Dead Drift made a donation of $5000 to Astonished!
To our Drop Dead Drift contact Kaylah Zahara and the Drop Dead Drift Guys -the core 4 are Austin Phillips, Justin Schiller, Jon Tougas and Kolton Ryan – as well as all the organizers, participants, volunteers, and spectators, THANK YOU! We cannot say enough great things about you. The same goes for Travis Fehler, Kyle Zimmer, and Dave Rushinko, who partnered with Drop Dead Drift to make the weekend possible. You are all so good. It is because of generous donations like these, that we are able to continue to engage in meaningful research and offer innovative services for young adults with complex physical disAbilities. It makes all the difference.
We encourage everyone out there looking for something interesting to do to check out a Drop Dead Drift event!
