Swayze Power

My name is Jennifer Zimmer I was blessed to be the recipient of the Swayze Foundation sponsorship. I am a single mother of a busy 14 year old working two jobs. I was having a hard time finding time to take care of my health. My weight was getting out of control and I found myself with very little energy. Getting this sponsorship to attend KB Fitness has giving me a new found energy and a jump start to a healthier life. Two months later I am down a total of 20 pounds. I am so thankful for the verity of classes offered at KB Fitness, they offer some I had never tried before though loved being able to do different classes each day. Everyone at KB’s was super friendly and I didn’t feel judged, but encouraged. Thank you Swayze Foundation and KB Fitness, I am forever grateful.

God Bless you
Jennifer Zimmer

Subject: Testimonial

On behalf of California Spectrum Care, we want to thank the Swayze foundation for sponsoring our wonderful trip to the petting zoo. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit that specializes in helping individuals with developmental disabilities. We are always looking for fun and exciting experiences that our clients can partake in and enjoy. It is especially difficult to find new places that are catered to our individuals since we are 100% community based. Part of the difficulty is having to find places that are accepting of our demographic and can take a large group. Despite these difficulties, the Swayze foundation was able to help us out. It is safe to say our clients, and employees, had a blast during our private tour of the petting zoo. We got to see and pet a bunch of different animals and even learned a few things. Overall, it was a great experience for the individuals we serve and to this day was one of best "Fun Friday" outings. We hope to visit there again and want to thank the Swayze foundation for keeping us in their hearts and mind!


Sincerely,

California Spectrum Care

“The Swayze Foundation, a gift that keeps on giving!"

 

Mindy Meriweather > SWAYZE

Thank you Charlene and Don Swayze and the Swayze Foundation for the kindness you share daily with so many and for the hat you sent, Sebastian loves it. 

He is now 4 and was diagnosed with Autism. We are starting him for early
intervention and he has had his first therapy treatment last week. He loves
his pool, going thru the car wash and hats. I know it's a different journey
we are learning now but hopefully through this program he will have the 
best chance at achieving all he wants in life. Much Love.

Thank you Patrick, Charlene and the Swayze Foundation! I love my hat - such an awesome gift and in Patrick's jovial, cheeky way there had to be a pic of my young colt, Cracker wearing it and Rambo, my kitten had to be in it too. He loved cats too!

Friends of Oak Forest Park presents Festival of Abilities

THE SWAYZE FOUNDATION supports and donates to The Festival Of Abilities each and every year!

The Festival of Abilities is an inclusive, activity-packed event benefiting a landmark Playground for All Abilities.

SWAYZE COMMEMORATIVE BENCH

Swayze Commemorative Bench - Oak Forest Park, Houston Texas~

The story behind the bench-
This originally started with Charlene Swazye's idea to erect
a memorial bronze sculpture for the Swayze family in a Houston 
city park and she had already been working with the parks department on it.
Then Yvonne De Armas (Parks and Recreation Dept) put in a request to the
city for a park bench and approval. It was approved as the Swayze family
commemorative bench and Yvonne stated that it was because of Charlene 
wanting to do something for the Swayze family that she put the request in. 
After that Charlene worked for months with the city of Houston Parks and
Recreation Department getting the funding, and donating her time, money and talent 
for the funding and also for the Festival of Abilities. Charlene's goal was
always to create a commemorative tribute to the Swayze's. You might also recall
that Don, Patrick and his family all grew up in the Oak Forest Park area.


The Festival of Abilities is an inclusive, activity-packed event 
benefiting a landmark Playground for All Abilities. 
Activities include adaptive sports and an obstacle course,
SIRE therapeutic horses, petting zoo, pick-your-own pumpkin patch,
trick or treating, art tile painting fundraiser, sports demos, performances, 
family photos, and an appearance by Houston Dynamo’s Diesel mascot. 
The event will be taking place this year on October 27th.

LEAVING A LEGACY

THE SWAYZE FOUNDATION IS MAKING THINGS HAPPEN!

"Thank you Swayze Foundation for your donation to our family. We are a duel military veteran family who volunteer in our community. My husband and his service dog pictured on the right have volunteered with the local girls softball league for 3 years and helps other veterans know what to do to help them receive their benefits and help getting service animals. My children and I work in our churches Ministry for children for disabilities. My 13 year old loves hanging out and talking with the teens or helping with the younger children. My 12 year old has been working on learning sign language for the last 6 years and helps me with lessons. The younger two just make friends and that is enough. Thank you so much for all that you do."

Deborah.

Against all odds, 8 year old Tessa has returned to her love of dance with hopes to become a dance teacher and inspire others that no matter what happens in life, you must always keep fighting for your dreams. We love you Tessa - a special thank you to Tessa's Hanger Clinic prosthetist, Adam Engstrom whose incredible care and support has helped make Tessa's dance dreams a reality.
