Why Not

I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.

Lose the Training Wheels is coming to Cudahy

I am excited to annouce that Lose the Training Wheels (http://www.losethetrainingwheels.org/)  is coming to Cudahy High School June 27-July 1. The camp is co-spnsored by The Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin (http://www.dsaw.org/default.aspx) and the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin (http://www.assew.org/).  The camp is designed to teach kids with a disability to ride a bike from training wheels to 2 wheels in 1 weeks time.  The camp has an 80% success rate, I know it works because my son Tyler has successfully gone through the camp.

I want to to thank Superintendent Jim Heiden and Jim Papala from the administration office.  I need to especially thank Principal Chris Haeger and Athletic Director Wayne Meyer for working with us when we needed to look for an alternate date.  Finally a big thank you to the entire School Board for giving their unanimous support for the camp.

This is going to be an opportunity to show people what the Cudahy High School as well as the Cudahy Community has to offer.  The camp brings in about 40 campers, their care givers and about 75 volunteers.  People come from all over the state to attend this camp.  We have a meeting in February with Mayor Day to see how we can work with the City in promoting this camp.  We also plan on meeting with the Chamber of Commerce to look for the business support.

For more information about the camp, please contact Ellen (Wenzel) Moon at the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin 414-327-3729 for more detail.
