Andrew has participated in several of the Roberts Ride & Rally fundraising events this summer to raise money for Family Respite. (and now he wants his mom to buy him a motorcycle!)
Robert’s Ride and Rally is a family oriented motorcycle and car scavenger hunt and rally that takes place throughout Windsor and Essex County.
All money raised from Robert’s Ride and Rally goes to Family Respite Services “Our Time” program.
Family Respite is a Windsor-Essex community organization that works with families caring for children under the age of eighteen who have intellectual, physical and mental health disabilities.
They provide families who have children with special needs a period of relief by providing a host family or an individual to care for their child. Host families take a child into their home for a weekend stay, while respite providers spend time with a child a few hours per week caring for the child and spending time together. Some children attend a residential program, Weekend with Friends, for a weekend stay.
