Hey everyone! I am really excited to launch Snapper49 and do what I can to make a difference in the community. While I have been fortunate until now health wise, I have seen what illness can do to the ones we love and our families. I have seen first hand what the hero's at children's hospitals are capable of. When we were kid's I was out playing in the woods with my younger brother. We were standing on a manhole cover that gave way as we plunged into the cold December water of a well. We couldn't get out. After treading water for nearly 30 minutes, my aunt found us and worked to get us out. When we were pulled from the well, my brother passed out and became hypothermic. They worked on him in the ambulance, at the first hospital he was taken to, and then at the children's hospital. His body temperature went as low as 80 degrees. At one point there were 6-7 nurses and doctors rubbing and warming him. Thankfully, because of their expertise and equipment developed through years of research, he made a full recovery. You can learn more about this day here:

I can't stand to think about kid's not getting a chance to live their life to the fullest. I not only will be working to raise money for The Children's Hospital of Buffalo, I will be volunteering my time on a regular basis to brighten the days of as many kids as I can. I want them to personally feel the impact of Snapper49 and the best way for that to happen is to be present.

This seasons goal is to raise $11,000 for The Children's Hospital Foundation of Buffalo!

I know that with everyone's support, we will reach this goal! No matter what the outcome, we will have made a huge difference in these children's lives!

Let's Make a Difference Together!
