While I’m unable to fundraise for political candidates and causes since I’m a public employee nothing prevents me from supporting children with disabilities and special health care needs. On the morning Sunday, September 16, I will be joining my co-workers as a team, the Sheriff’s Posse, to participate in the Schwartz Center for Children’s 24th Annual Walk-A-Thon at Fort Taber in New Bedford.
I know that money is tight in this Obama economy and most of you are already making various political donations to our various Republican candidates, and that’s absolutely wonderful! However, I’m hoping that my friends will be able to make a pledge, no matter how small, to help support these special needs children who are serviced by the Schwartz Center here in Dartmouth. The walk kicks off at 9:30 AM and is approximately 3.5 miles, or two laps around the historic fort. In addition to helping me raise money for the children, if you’re in the area then you’re welcome to stop by and cheer us on!
I’ve set my personal goal at $1,000 to raise on behalf of the children who are served by the Schwartz Center, where love sees no limits. Will you please help me reach my goal?

For over sixty years, the Schwartz Center for Children, in Southeastern Massachusetts, has been the region’s leading provider of education, therapy, and medical care for children with special needs. With a dedicated and experienced staff, they offer: Occupational, Speech, and Physical Therapy, Medical Evaluations, Developmental Screenings, Early Intervention, Social Skills Education, Private Day School, Pediatric Specialty Clinics, and more.
President George W. Bush often called us to serve a cause greater than ourselves and right now, I am making my cause the children of the Schwartz Center.
Thank you for your consideration of this charitable request.
