Prepare to be inspired!
Chris Norton suffered a spinal cord injury while playing college football and doctors gave him a 3% chance of moving anything below his neck again. Four years later, he defied the odds and walked across the stage at his college graduation with his fiancé, Emily Summers. Three years after graduation, Chris and Emily walked seven yards down the aisle; seven symbolizing the seven-year anniversary of his injury. Now, the two are foster parents, committed to providing a safe, loving home for children in need.
Chris's message is clear: Adversity is universal, but we all have the Power to Stand and make a difference for youth in foster care.
By sponsoring this event, you help provide a powerful voice for a child in foster care---you give them a CASA volunteer. Without a CASA and without your support, these children are forced to navigate through an overburdened child welfare system that is hard pressed to meet their needs. Without a CASA, they can easily be re-abused or neglected in foster care or be returned to an unsafe home. CASA volunteers fight for the child's right to grow up in a safe, permanent home. CASA of West Texas served 487 foster children in seven West Texas counties last year, 99% of the children in foster care in our service area. Help us serve 100%. Every child in care deserves a powerful voice. Be that voice for foster children by sponsoring this event!
