Runway Loud

Good morning to you my friends!  I mentioned yesterday that I had more exciting news to share with you.  Cortney has been invited to "walk" the runway for a wonderful charity event that benefits the March of Dimes! She is so excited to participate in this! The press release is below!
Pinch me.
Who would have thought all of this was even possible?
19 Year Old With Cerebral Palsy Wishes To Be A Runway Model.

RunwayLOUDTM a Fundraising Event benefiting March of Dimes is helping one girl's dream become a reality.

May 19, Branson Missouri - RunwayLOUDTM, a fundraising event scheduled for the middle of August in Branson Missouri has been in contact with the family of 19 year old, Cortney Kovack. They’ve been discussing how to make their young girls dream of being a runway model a reality regardless of the Cerebral Palsy that confines her to a wheelchair.

Event producer Sharra Smith said, “I was made aware of the inspiring request of Cortney’s family by my friend Erin Wicker, who is the Social Media Manager at Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson Missouri. Erin had sent me to a link on the Cerebral Palsy Family Network through facebook. I realized that RunwayLOUD had an opportunity to help make a young girl's wish come true and make an impact in her life, in a big way!”

Cortney has just turned 19, but she functions at the level of a 3-4 year old girl. When asked how they knew this is a desire of Cortney’s, her mother Michele simply said, “At an early age Cort always seemed to shine in front of a camera. She was happy and beautiful. All we can think about is giving her the opportunities that most think she’ll never get, due to her CP”.

“Having the honor to host Cortney, brings something more important to the RunwayLOUD event and to every person attending. She brings her Dreams, and the dreams of other children just like her. In watching those dreams become a reality we get to be a small part of her happiness.” said Smith. She continued, “Cortney also allows us to remind people that the March of Dimes supports a number of grants on prenatal brain development and factors that may disrupt it and continues to work towards unlocking the triggers of CP.”

More information, tickets, sponsorships and donation options can be found online at Entertainment LLC payments of over $75.00 are tax deductible as a charitable contribution.
