Here are a few things we have done since our recent move.
We attended the 6th Annual Light It Up Blue event on April 4th at Cal State Channel Islands; listening to speakers and watching the space light up in blue, making it one of 11,000 sites worldwide taking on that hue for United Nations General Counsel’s World Autism Awareness Day that honors those living with autism.
We also proudly announce that Laurie Singer has been recognized publicly for them as one of five new members of the Ventura County Sports Hall of Fame! Joining an elite group that includes Olympic medalists, collegiate All-Americans, Major League Baseball MVPs, and NFL Super Bowl winners, Laurie will be officially inducted into the class of 2017 at a ceremony on June 4th at the Ventura Beach Marriott.
While overcoming personal loss and struggles with ADHD to achieve professional success helping others tackle their own life challenges, Laurie has also been quietly accomplishing great things in the athletic arena. She has made running 100 mile races nearly routine, completing 28 ultra-marathons of 31 miles or longer. She is also a 3-time Ironman, which involves swimming 2.4 miles followed by a 112-mile bike ride and running a full 26.2 mile marathon.
On April 27th we held the ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of our new office located in Camarillo off Mission Oaks Blvd.
On Saturday, May 20th, we attended a Family Fun Day event at California Lutheran University hosted by Center4specialneeds. There were crafts, and games for kids, therapy dogs and horses, food trucks, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department brought their SWAT truck, and Diego Pena, author of Anatomy of Autism, was there signing copies of his book! It was an incredible event, and we are looking forward to attending more in the future.
