Act4Me Presentation & Sponsor Child Visit

February, 2017

We want to thank so many of you who joined us in our efforts to raise enough funds to help a child with developmental delays due to a neurological disorder get the therapy he/she needs. Thanks to your motivation, effort, and generosity we not only reached our goal but also surpassed it! Total raised: $5,615.00! We could not have done this without the help of each and every one of you who motivated your child to create their own individual challenge, sent out emails to family and friends informing them of the challenge, helped your child work towards meeting her/his individual goal, and made generous donations. We also would like to thank Maida Berberian-Bignon the Founder and President of Act4Me, Martha Poulat the Founder and Vice-President of Act4Me, and Valentina Ruiz Managing Member of ChallengeMeNow. These wonderful ladies have helped us through every step of the process. Although our fundraiser is technically over, our challenge remains on the challengemenow.com site and children with neurological disorders continue to need therapy. Please feel free to continue joining efforts with Act4Me in helping children with neurological disorders get the therapy they need. Your choice to give is their chance to achieve!

Our morning was filled with joy as Dorion visited with us today! Dorion is a 7 year old boy with multiple neurological challenges who will continue to receive the therapy he needs and could not have received without organizations like Act4Me, Challenge Me Now, motivated students like ours and generous donors like you; our MCA family! 


We sponsored Dorion two years ago and have the pleasure of sponsoring him again this year via the funds generated from our fundraiser earlier this school year. New students had a chance to meet the child their effort is going to impact and former students had a chance to see Dorion's growth from two years ago. We will receive updates on how the therapies are helping Dorion and he will return to visit us again. The students are very happy and excited about this.


Although our fundraiser is technically over for this year, children with neurological disorders are in need for therapy. Please feel free to continue joining efforts with Act4Me in helping children with neurological disorders get the therapy they need. Your choice to give is their chance to achieve!

We are excited to announce that we have chosen to continue our annual charity fundraising event locally with Maida Berberian-Bignon, Founder and President of act4me. act4me is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established  in Miami-Dade County Florida, by volunteers dedicated to distribute financial assistance to local families, whose children suffer developmental delays due to a neurological disorder and are in need of additional income to pay or supplement payment for the treatment and care of their child with special needs.

Each child is awarded a $3,500.00 grant to cover the cost of therapy and the therapy sessions are closely monitored and followed up by act4me to ensure the child is receiving the help they need. MCA’s challenge is to raise enough money to offer a grant to one child which the students can then meet and track his or her progress. Not only are we sponsoring a very worthy organization but our students are also learning by witnessing the impact of their efforts. For the past two years, they exceeded their goal and were able to offer additional therapy to Dorion and Sara, two elementary aged children with multiple neurological challenges who received therapy for their special needs.

Our students had a chance to meet both Dorion and Sara! They sat in amazement and with teary eyes as they heard their parents tell their story. It was a very valuable experience for our students.

MCA Academy raised again this year enough funds
to sponsor one more Act4Me child

Once more this year, MCA Academy chose the local organization (Act4Me, A Chance for Therapy) as their annual fundraising endeavor. Act4Me is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established  in Miami-Dade County Florida, by volunteers dedicated to distribute financial assistance to local families, whose children suffer developmental delays due to a neurological disorder and are in need of additional income to pay or supplement payment for the treatment and care of their child with special needs.

We want to thank so many of you who joined us in our effort to raise enough funds again this year to help one child with neurological disorders get the therapy he/she needs. Thanks to your motivation, effort, and generosity we not only reached our goal but surpassed it! Total raised: $4,207! 

MCA academy students will be able to meet this child and track his/her progress along the year. Not only we are sponsoring a very worthy organization but our students are also learning by witnessing the impact of their efforts.
