November 2, 2017

Impact Stories

Heather whipped out her medals—an entire bag’s worth. Heather is an athlete thanks to her grandmother and adoptive parent, Marie. “I’ve had her since she was three years old,” Marie said. “I appreciate what HeartShare has done for me. With the Options grant, I can help Heather do what she loves,” said Marie, who uses the grant for Heather to attend a summer camp in upstate New York. As a doting grandmother and primary caretaker, Marie supports Heather in her athletic endeavors. From the Special Olympics to braving the Black Diamond ski trails at Lake Placid, Heather is fearless. Her next endeavor? “I want to learn how to snowboard,” Heather said with a smile.
