From Jason Campoli
"Our family is excited to continue fundraising for the Lenora Campoli SEPAC Educational Fund which will help fund the Bedford SEPAC's efforts this upcoming year in bringing continued education, speakers and awareness to students, educators, and parents of our community, on various topics of inclusion and support of our special education learners.
For over a decade our mom Lenora Campoli donated her time and energy for Bedford SEPAC, an organization she cared about very deeply. Every September on Bedford day she inspired us all leading wheelchair basketball, auctioning items, and lighting up talking about events like the 'Kids on the Block' puppet show she helped drive that fostered awareness for disabilities and learning challenges, to students and educators.
Bedford SEPAC has provided speaker topics such as "Stand Up for Inclusion" and "Anxiety at home and school", and this fall has helped add inclusion support for kids participating in recreation activities.
To raise awareness and kickoff funding for this years efforts, I will be completing a half-ironman distance triathlon event (1.2mi/54mi/13mi swim/bike/run) which will take place (fittingly!) on Bedford Day, Sept 18th in Plymouth, MA. The Campoli Family will again be double-matching all gifts up to our fundraising goal of $4000 for this cause Lenora supported so passionately for so many years!
Please consider a donation of any size for this cause we are very excited to support!" To donate please use this link:
