There are four components:
• a unified sport…we play bocce ball
• a school-wide campaign to foster diversity and respect for all
• a community service project
• a Youth Activation Committee (YAC)
LINKS is a peer-to-peer inclusion program where students support a same-aged peer from the cognitively impaired classroom at school.

Another celebration took place on Saturday at the WMML field for Cam's baseball game. We were surprised to see one of Cam's former teachers, Ms. Kathy and her husband, Carl and Forest. It's easy to see even though Cam hadn't seen Ms. Kathy or Forest for over a year, he was very excited they were present.

Big crowd and a perfect day for a ball game and for introducing a new WMML first...from an organization that was new to us- May We Help.
This group brought a batting apparatus powered by a hand pulley. Cam was able to use the pulley to swing the bat without any help from anyone! What a cool invention!!
The organization strives to provide support in a different way - by building assistive devices or products to enable people with different abilities to enjoy everyday life. Individuals devoting their own time and energy to benefit others...sometimes it truly is better to give than to receive...and sometimes your gift of giving means more than any monetary value ever could!
Cam is fully aware that both of his parents have busy schedules with work. Maybe it's time to find him an electronic calendar...
"Mom, we should go to Heidi's Farm Stand this week!"
Sure thing, Cam. That sounds good.
"Ok, when are you open?"
