Click, flash, snap! Aspire’s Beautiful Children Fashion Show

Aspire Children’s Services’ participants, alumni, and family were caught on camera as they prepared backstage and took to the runway at Aspire’s Beautiful Children Fashion Show. The seventh annual event, emceed by Lisa Parker from NBC5 News, celebrated the amazing successes children with developmental disabilities achieved with the support of family, friends and caring professionals. Proceeds from the event go to Aspire Children’s Services to provide a wide array of pediatric therapies, specialized services and family supports for more than 500 children with developmental disabilities. Aspire is a leader in services that help children and adults with developmental disabilities reach for their hopes and aspirations. Whether helping a child take her first steps, assisting an adult finding his first job or caring for a senior adult with dementia, Aspire helps people with developmental disabilities reach a little farther, a little higher and aspire to new possibilities.
