Ethan’s Story

On June 29, 2013, at URJ-Goldman Union Camp Institute, a summer camp near Indianapolis, a sudden burst of lightning struck on the athletic field where Ethan was out enjoying some Ultimate Frisbee with other campers. Everything changed for Ethan in that one moment. He was taken in critical condition to the local Children’s Hospital, where the doctors and nurses worked around the clock to stabilize him and assess his injuries. Ethan suffered a severe brain injury as a result of his injuries.

Tonight was Ethan's night to shine as he became a graduate of Loveland High School (through Bobbie B Fairfax School). It has taken a village to get him to this moment and we are forever grateful to everyone who aided in his journey to graduation.

Congratulations, Ethan!
