PROJECT DETAILS

Our 5 year old son, Will died 3 days before he graduated from his preschool at CP Rochester, an integrated preschool for children with and without disabilities. Will loved adventures and was a very caring child. We want to bring some of his zest for life to his friends at CP Rochester by building an adaptive zipline that will allow children of all capabilities to fly. In addition to the joy of flying, kids develop a sense of independence and self-confidence, and also build upper body strength.

INSPIRATION FOR THIS PROJECT

William Katawazi, our sword fighting, race running, trail blazing, monkey climbing son. We miss you.
