Dear Mr. Paik,

I just want to give you and your staff a big thank you!  Today Casey scored his first 2 win-2 loss tournament at the Olmsted Falls. His first official 2-2 that he himself earned and did not get because of bi-rounds! He won round one and two which put him in the tougher bracket, and he came close to winning round 3. Judges who judged him other weeks commented that they saw such growth in him!

 

I have to thank you all because the support you have been giving Casey has made all the difference. His confidence has grown so much as well as his skills. 

 

Special thank you to Isaiah [Casey's instructor last summer] for personally taking time to look at Casey's cases and providing such valuable feedback. It helped tremendously.

 

We are so thankful to be a part of the CDC camp and having all of your support!

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you all do. It makes such a difference for these kids!!!!

 

Kindest Regards, 

Michelle Gray

Proud Momma today!!!
