Hope this is ok to post. I got this e-mail and thought it was such a great program I had to pass it on. It's Agility helping disabled kids! What a great program. they could win a $25,000 grant if enough people vote.

<<Markham is awarding a $25,000 grant to a deserving community program.
One of the 10 finalists has an all volunteer program that provides an
opportunity for disabled children to complete their weekly physical,
speech, and occupational therapy by taking a dog through an agility
course. The volunteers have trained their dogs to work with these
children who have varying ranges of disabilities. Many of these
children face months and even years of difficult physical therapy.

Please go to this link and vote for the Paws and Effects program to win
an award.

When you first click on Paws and Effect, you are NOT voting - you are
only getting information about the program. You must then click on
"vote for this finalist". You may vote each day until July 21st.>>
