How to help
We invite all to participate where they are comfortable … run or walk in the race, be a virtual runner and support a team, volunteer to help with a fundraising event or make an in-kind donation or monetary donation. We appreciate anything you can do to assist us in supporting the students in the community.
The efforts and accomplishments of the Sophie's Run & Foundation have assisted the Park Hill School District by creating an Assistive Technology library so that trial devices are used in the classrooms to determine the needs of Augmentative Communication for students with special needs. Alternative augmentative communication provides students with expressive communication, increasing literacy, improvements in curriculum, social communication, social interaction and development, and most importantly, independence. Our goal through the foundation is to decrease the amount of time students wait on accessing a personal communication device and to assist the student’s parents/guardians with training so that the augmentative communication is carried through at home, in school, and in the community.
Our success is based on donations and participation. Both individuals and Corporate Sponsors have been a huge part of our continued success. In addition, the community of Lake Waukomis – the Lake Waukomis Men’s Club continues to sponsor the race each year, the City of Lake Waukomis & the Lake Waukomis Homes Association who have offered to host the event each year and the residents of Lake Waukomis who so graciously donate their time and spirit to this event. We are so humbled and grateful -- thank you!

The fundraising we do benefits children in surrounding communities to assist them in obtaining technology that will help them in school and in life. Our goal is to provide children who have special needs with the means to more effectively communicate. Park Hill School District has documented the work being done in the classrooms with Assistive Technology Devices donated to the Assistive Tech Library in the District.
