new trackchair arrived on april 14 (good Friday). as a friend ironically noted, HE IS RISEN! it was so wonderful to see Jason standing and moving at the same time. and our trek to Oak Openings the following week was so special! keep on keeping on, Finn! Your Team is so happy for you and so proud of all you've accomplished to date.

we did a demo of this chair last weekend and are in the market for one! it will enable us to hit the woods and better navigate our potholed streets (don't even get me started on the sidewalks). unfortunately, it's not covered by insurance and will run a hefty $20k. sadly, most of the items that can so greatly improve quality of life for people in Jason's situation are prohibitively expensive. in case you wonder why we fundraise, that's one of many reasons why. be on the lookout this summer! hopefully in time for festival!!
