Katie and I are participating in the Special Gifts Theatre Virtual 5K-Your Way! If you know us, you know that we are not runners but we can walk, and we've been training for this event for the last few weeks! I have been part of the Special Gifts Theatre team for the last three years and it's truly been an honor! Special Gifts runs musical theatre programs for children and adults with special needs. For months they work with our wonderful staff of therapeutic professionals and their mainstream peer mentors to put on a full blown musical for their family, friends and community members. SGT is a non-profit and as the Finance Manager I can attest to the fact that the fees we collect only cover 30% of the program expenses and we never turn away a student for financial reasons...which is one more reason why I love this organization. Please consider supporting Katie and I as we support SGT and it's "Shining Stars"!
You Do YOU......For SGT!
This year's annual 5k fundraiser is both virtual and adaptable....meaning you can participate on your schedule with an activity that suits you!

Thank you for your support of SGT --- although this ongoing pandemic impacts all of us, SGT has found a way to look in a different direction to raise funds--yet keep our annual tradition to host a 5k. Luckily, our "super-powers" are adaptability and creativity!
And remember, your generosity helps to foster self-confidence, social and language skills, both on and off the stage, for all of our SGT students!
