When they were in third grade, two former students in my fifth grade class decided they could make a difference in the world. Kyra and Angie began Angie's Hope www.AngiesHope.org to find a cure for SMA, spinal muscular atrophy, yet Angie lives every day with a contagious passion few people I have ever met possess. Last year she came to Brookdale to speak to the fifth graders after being named one of the top ten student volunteers in the nation. She's off to Stanford in the fall and this year is their 10th and final fundraiser that began in the May Watts neighborhood as a garage sale in 2007. Watch this MVHS video promo and, if you can, donate to Angie's Hope.
To all my Brookdale friends, this is the book I picked to read to all of you during the last week of school. You all have amazing chances...
