Tailing the Komets

Public service announcement

As some of you may know, my nephew, Jonathan Shepler has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Jonathan is a huge Komet Hockey fan and loved to play hockey with his little brother, Blake, before the disease took his ability to walk.

On June 5, as part of the MDA lockup, I am being locked up to help raise money for Jonathan and kids like Jon, to be able to go to MDA camp. All the money stays in our community and helps our local MDA offices. Jon has so much fun going to camp every year. Its a place he can be himself and do all the fun stuff that is aimed towards handicap children.

I am asking for donations, no matter how big or small, you will be helping these kids go to camp. Read the flyer below and follow the directions to make a donation.

My Name is Janice Shepler, just look up my name and you can make a donation on the website. If you'd rather make a donation in another form, please contact me via email@janiceshepler@yahoo.com and we can set something up.

I have to raise $2400 by Tuesday. I know its been an awesome season for the Komets, everyone is taking a break before the ECHL season starts, but I am asking if you can dig deep and really show Komet nation we have huge hearts!!!

Thank you in advance to any one that can donate. I truly, truly appreciate it.
