  3. Wow. A beautiful event. As a parent of a special needs child who benefits a lot, like, a LOT, over the year from the Center, I’d like to thank everyone who ran, raised funds or helped in any way for the success of the day.

Thank you so much for everything and may this good deed tip ur scale so that you and ur family are inscribed for a happy, healthy & prosperous new year !!
