We thought you might like to know that last night our family were guests at the Epilepsy Foundation Fundraising Gala where our son Toby was “highlighted” after dinner. During the speech Yorkshire Academy was mentioned for putting together a team for the Epilepsy Walk at the Houston Zoo in April this year – thanks to all of you who supported Toby on the walk. I hope we will be able to do it again next April.
We were very proud to have donated over $1,600 to the Epilepsy Foundation with funds raised from the Zoo Sponsored Walk.
