Emma, a daughter of two Dublin City Schools teachers, was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition that inhibits movement. She still is a bright, lively first grader at Riverside Elementary, but her greatest dream still looms ahead of her -- walking. In order to achieve Emma’s greatest dream, the Dickman family is going to St. Louis to have an operation to fix Emma’s back, providing her the ability to walk. Emma’s dream fulfilled.
To support Emma in her journey, the students of Jerome have decided to create a walk to raise money to help her achieve her dream. On May 4, all of Dublin is invited to join us in Emma’s Walk from 11:00 - 3:00 at Dublin Jerome High School. There will be activities in the field surrounding the Jerome track as well as food for sale from local sponsors. We hope to raise enough money to help with the burden of surgery costs and the expenses of therapy. Any excess money we raise will be donated to our local Special Olympics program. With your help, we can support a little girl like Emma to be able to do a normal thing like walking.
To support Emma and her dream, plan on attending Emma's walk for food, fun, and a great time. If you are interested in ordering a T-shirt, fill out the attached form and send it in to Dublin Jerome, or drop it off in the attendance office at Dublin Jerome. Thank you for helping make Emma's dream a reality.
