CEREBRAL PALSY AWARENESS CHALLENGE COIN
I’m proud of introduce the Cerebral Palsy Awareness Coin. This is my personal take on the military challenge coin – designed for those who have, and support, people with cerebral palsy. A portion of each coin sold goes to support the Make Lemon Aide Foundation for Cerebral Palsy.
WHY A CHALLENGE COIN?
The idea for the CP Awareness Coin actually began about 15 years ago when I gave one of my prized military coins to a young man named Trevor. I gave that coin to Trevor, who also has cerebral palsy, in the hope that it would give him a bit of strength in his journey ahead. The look on Trevor’s face was priceless – and made a big impact on me.
SHARE THE COIN
I designed the CP Awareness Coin large – it measures two-inches in diameter – which makes it easy for everyone to grab and hold onto. The phrases “You Are Not Alone” and “Focus On Ability” are topics that I believe strongly in and often speak on as I travel the country sharing the story of Someone Like Me.
I hope you’ll pick up one (or several!) for yourself or someone you love.
