Thank you to all of our wonderful donors who have supported us so far! It's donations like these that help expand our program and make wonderful events, such as our 4th Annual 5k/8k Superhero Run, possible. To show our appreciation, here is a video from some of the wonderful CPS students in our program talking about how excited they are for our run.
