The facilities are designed to ensure that everyone, no matter their disability, has the support they need to have the time of their lives, gain confidence and a sense of independence, challenge themselves and cultivate meaningful friendships.
When asked about the drop zone jump, Cormican shares, "Last year was my first time jumping and I can honestly say the first step was the hardest part in getting over the ledge and trusting in the rope. After that, it was all about enjoying the moment while knowing through the generous donations raised that week there will be a lot of kids enjoying the (Easter Seal) camp experience".
"Raising the funds was the easy part. When people hear the cause, I hit my fundraising goal in no time". In 2009, Cormican raised over $1,600.00 towards Easter Seal in just under six days, with donations coming in from every corner across the country.
