This year is the Dinosores MC’s “Make a Difference” fifth annual event. Every other day we hear about a child who has been stricken with a terrible disease, illness or accident. Maybe they were born with a condition or there was an event that will change their lives for the short term or forever. Through Make a Difference YOU can help make a tough situation better and change a child’s life here in our community. With your support, our commitment to helping children in our community is possible.
This year Make a Difference is privileged again to be working with the Child Life Specialist Program at the Pediatrics Unit at Carle Hospital in Urbana. The need in this area is not funded by any hospital, clinic or doctors group. Some of the things this program needs are things that we take for granted in daily life. Things like video games, toys, iPads, to art supplies and books. All these things are distractions from the burden of the reality these children deal with every day, whether it is for days, weeks, months or longer.
In 2012, we were able to raise enough funds to purchase iPads for the children to use during their time at the Pediatric unit. We were also able to assist in renovating the teen room. We look forward to helping them reach their project goals this year. This can only be accomplished through local support from people here in our community. Please join us in helping the kids who need it.
For 2016, we are again holding a raffle with three great prizes:
- Barrett M99 Rifle* or $1,500 cash
