BENEFACTORS

ASSOCIATION OF HORIZON

Although the Association of Horizon, Inc. has existed for many years, the current organization was formed in 1991 in response to a cut in funding that kept adults with disabilities from attending the Muscular Dystrophy Association summer camp. Several volunteers and disabled adults who were friends at this camp, decided to get together and continue this annual tradition. There were 25 friends who had less than 9 months to organize and raise funding to hold the 1st Horizon Summer Camp. The original founders came from a variety of backgrounds, with different affiliations but they all had one thing in common, the desire and determination to hold camp for adults with Muscular Dystrophy. By working together there was nothing going to stop the tradition. This group raised money however they could buy asking friends, family, coworkers to donate. They even held a birthday party to raise money, they tried just about everything. After several months of dedication and hard work in June of 1992, Horizon Summer Camp was started. The first camp was a little smaller but the adults with Muscular Dystrophy were grateful to be able to attend summer camp. Often times, this was the only vacation for the individuals. This week long excursion is also an excellent opportunity to give the individuals caregivers a necessary and well deserved break. Horizon has since grown and successfully produced yearly Summer Camp Programs for adults with a wide range of physical disabilities including Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy and Multiple Sclerosis.
