okay, I want to help you, let’s do this. Everybody in.>>One, two, three, together.>>One night I come across the try for
your school. And I’m like wow, that’s awesome. I contacted our local Ford dealership. Before I knew it, they sent me an email

like we got and they were yes. The support was incredible. It was amazing to see how
the community gathered for us.>>We got money for shoes, for knee pads,
