Tween Time and Laser Quest

laser questLaser Quest has always been a favorite destination of ours and last Friday we were reminded why.  The Tween Time gang played two exciting games, played in the arcade, and had a chance to meet new friends. From the crazy code names to the awesome laser action, a great time was had by all.

Last weekend the Tidewater Builders Association hosted this fantastic event, featuring an exciting line-up of celebrities and home and garden experts, offering something for everyone in the family.  Thanks to the support of Kellam Mechanical, F.A.C.T. had a booth at the show to spread the word about our programs and fund raising events.  Kellam also made a generous donation that will benefit our summer camp program.  We met so many nice people; donors, service providers, and families with autism. Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers that helped man the booth all weekend. We can’t wait for next year!

 

WOD an Event

Last Sunday we had the privilege of meeting an amazing community of athletes.  Men and women of every age, size, and ability participated in a Workout Of the Day at Crossfit Takeover to benefit Camp Gonnawannagoagin’.  The Cave Mama’s, Deb Feinman and Amy Volk, are two incredibly motivated and compassionate parents of camp volunteer peer buddies.  These wonderful women value the experience that their children have had at our camp and wanted to give back.  With the support of Crossfit Takeover coaches and co-owners, Ryan and Andy, the WOD for Autism was a huge success raising more than $1,800 for camper scholarships this summer!  To check out the action click here.
