(June 11, 2018) – Thanks to the support of five incredible matching donors along with numerous friends and supporters, Aspire raised over $112,000 for its week-long giving challenge!

The giving challenge shared the stories of several of our inspiring Aspire participants and families. People like Sonja, an incredible young woman with autism who recently secured a full-time job at Medix through Aspire Careers, or Angelina, an eight-year-old girl with Joubert syndrome who is now communicating via sign language and an augmentative device thanks to her work with Aspire Kids. We watched the progress of five-year-old Brooke, who was born with Spina Bifida and has been working with Aspire’s therapists since she was a baby. Thanks to her work with the Aspire team, she’s been unstoppable in making new strides! Aspire is grateful for the donations and support that have poured in over the past week. Thanks to each and every one of you, we are able to continue lifting up 1,000 kids and adults with disabilities throughout our shared Chicago community. These funds will help ensure the people at Aspire have bright futures. Thank you for helping to secure their futures. Together with you, we’re better!
