Pledge to end the R-Word. Retarded. It gets thrown around so easily to describe things that are dumb, stupid, ignorant, ....
Originally it was to describe people who are different, special, and unique. People who needed some extra help but also who give so much more. I pledge to not use the R-word and stop the stigma that surrounds it. I am so proud of all of the special needs people I am blessed to know and their bravery, courage, and simple wisdom inspires me daily.

The on-line auction was a HUGE success!! Through the generous donations of amazing items to auction and the amazing bids of wonderful participants we made over $3700!! From our family to you and yours we humbly thank you from the bottoms of our hearts. This money is going to change the lives of our family and help Larry have his number one fan (our mom) in Korea cheering him on. We are able to support him and not worry about the financial costs to such an expensive endeavour. This is truly life changing. Thank you.

We are making a cloth banner to be signed by as many people as possible and sent with mom to put up at the finsih line to cheer on Larry! Anyone who we see over the course of the online auction, at family and social gatherings, or at any events Larry will be participating in will have a chance to sign it. We want to fill it up with all the love of all the people who have made a difference in Larry's life. Make sure to ask about it!
