Why Sibshops Rock

I had not ever heard of this thing called The Dirty Scurry.  As much as we are at Cook Children's you would think I would know of any big fundraisers they were having.  But I didn't.  Then a letter arrived from Kat, the sibshop leader, for Carly.  Someone had offered to sponsor 15 sibshop kids in The Dirty Scurry, a mud run to raise money for Cooks.  Carly was excited to go even though she had no idea what a mud run was.   As a sibshop kid, not only would she get to do the race for free but she was a VIP.  It was a little over a mile with 12 muddy obstacles and 1500 kids.  I was so proud of her that she finished and she actually enjoyed it.  She can't wait to do it again next year.  If you have sibshops in your area I highly recommend getting your typical child involved.  The typical child develops a group of friends who "get it"- you know, like how parents of special needs kids just "get it".
