                        SPECIAL VAN FOR A SPECIAL MAN

       If you have had the privilege of meeting  John Cornelius and his son Joseph, you would know that their lives are bound by their mutual love and devotion.  They live every day to the fullest inspite of the obstacles posed by cerebral palsy, including  TRAVEL and TRANSPORTATION.  You would also know that inspite of his special needs, Joseph is an athlete, who loves to participate in marathons and triathlons across California with his large community of friends, family and fellow sports enthusiasts.  It requires a great deal of preparation and commitment to make these events possible, with the extra equipment that Joseph requires to be successful in the events he loves. 

    Joseph has recently needed a newly outfitted vehicle for his safety and continued involvement in Team Joseph events.  At the beginning of a new year, there is no better way to show your love and support for these two amazing men then to contribute to their safety and well-being through the acquisition of the new, "Team Joseph" specialized van.  With our contributions,  we can acknowledge their strength and perseverance to live a full and active life, without barriers.

 PLEASE  share this with all who love John and Joseph  (QUIETLY) without letting John know, if possible! Please use your social media, to get the word out, and challenge you friends and family to help Joseph!!

Joseph's new van has much needed safety improvements to ensure his and Dad's well-being on the road, and keep those miles of smiles going!!
