For each of the past eight years our family has been humbled by the support of many friends at the Bridger and Essex Grebe Softball Challenge. This year was certainly no exception. We could not overstate our appreciation and gratitude for everything that all of you have helped us accomplish through the Bridger and Essex Grebe Fund – as well as helping us keep the memories of the boys alive. Thank you.
Perhaps above all we want to once again express our gratitude to Connie and Reik Read for creating this special way to help other families while we remember both Bridger and Essex. The funds raised during the event support the Bridger and Essex Grebe Fund, which in turn supports families with children who have needs similar to those that Bridger and Essex had, but who do not have the good fortune to be able to afford the life-changing therapy, assistance, and equipment that those children need. In addition, while we have talked about our hope that someday we will be able to support efforts to develop a cure for INAD, this year that dream is beginning to become a reality.
Although we are still counting the proceeds, the event will have raised more than $25,000 which will go directly to the INADCure Foundation to help fund new research that is designed to find a cure for INAD. We cannot imagine a better legacy for Bridger and Essex than to help drive the development of a cure.
Again, thank you.
If you weren’t able to make the event but still want to make a donation you are – of course – still able to do so online. http://www.greatermilwaukeefoundation.org/donors/give-online/give-bridger-stowe-grebe-fund/
