My name is Hanna and I work in the Respite Program at Easter Seals Iowa. I've officially been with Easter Seals Iowa for just over a year!
The Walk for Independence is a special fundraiser for me. I get the privilege to work directly with the campers and I get to see the impact that these donations make!
Going to camp on the weekend to "work" is like inhaling a breath of fresh air. Every weekend is new, exciting, and campers and staff are full of life! I get to forget about any personal or school related issues and focus on having fun and seeing campers increase their independence. Whether it be watching a camper make it to the top of the rock wall, passing their swim test, (I speak for everybody when I say we are ALL excited for the new pool renovation!) or singing camp songs until you can't talk anymore, camp is the best place to be.
Camp really is for Campers and that is exactly why I raise money!
