RUNNERS WANTED!

July 1, 2015

We still have a few spots left on Team Latham for the Falmouth Road Race.
Past year’s runners can vouch for the amazing experience. The course is beautiful (as seen in the above video) and you will be running for Latham Centers and our children and adult residents with complex special needs! Additionally, you do not have to pay to participate, but rather fundraise through friends, family, and local business contacts who are bound to support the cause. This year’s runners include some of our amazingly talented and dedicated staff, as well as friends and family of some of our Latham Residents.
Latham Centers runners participate for so many reasons. Below is just one:
Steve B., father of one Latham resident, runs the Road Race every year out of extreme gratitude and hope for a bright future for his child and his fellow Latham residents. When his son Michael moved to the Cape in September of 2009, things were not going well for the young man or his caring family. Michael was in crisis. His weight was too high, his outbursts explosive, and his behavior erratic. Following  difficulties at his previous placement, Michael’s family visited Latham Centers and immediately knew this was the place for him based on Latham’s expert care. Five years after making an incredibly difficult decision to place Michael at Latham’ residential school in Brewster, his family members cannot imagine what their lives would be like had it not been for the consistency and supervision provided by the staff 365/24/7. Since graduating from Latham School, Michael transitioned to a Latham Adult Group Home and is doing better than ever expected. He has participated in Special Olympics, delivers Meals on Wheels, and continues to participate in community activities. All in all, Michael is doing fantastically. Without Latham Centers’ program none of these feats would be possible.
