Braille books for children
The WHAS Crusade for Children sometimes brings together unusual partners to help youngsters with special needs. Case in point: the Crusade, the American Printing House for the Blind and the Kentucky Correctional Institute for Women have combined efforts to bring Braille books to children with sight issues.
Horses deliver help and hope
The WHAS Crusade for Children has been helping youngsters with special needs for four generations. But what happens when those children grow up? We bring you a reunion as two young men revisit the first therapeutic, horseback-riding program in Kentucky…Exceptional Equitation.
Damon makes a splash!
Summer vacation is quickly coming to an end for students across Kentuckiana. One Bullitt County youngster and his classmates are enjoying a last outing to the pool. It’s an outing where 9-year-old Damon breaks free of his wheelchair and swims with his friends, thanks in part to the WHAS Crusade for Children.
