Inspired by an episode on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", my wife and I were moved by a story of a young man Jake Grys. Born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle-bone disease) and dwarfism, it was at the moment Jake Grys touched our hearts forever. Despite his life threatening disease, the fact that he continues to break bones monthly, this young man is remarkable! His story and beautiful spirit motivated us to help bring joy to others like Jake that may not have financial means. Newly opened handicapped accessible park, Morgan's Wonderland, had just been built in San Antonio.
Our idea was shared with family and friends including Gordon Hartman- Founder of Morgan's Wonderland. Encouraged by their excitement and enthusiasm, Project Angel Fares was formed.
Our unique charity gives special needs individuals and their families a chance to visit San Antonio and a very special theme park with only their needs in mind. Thanks to Morgan's Wonderland and our very special inspiration Jake Grys and his family, we are able to provide a means for an amazing day.
