On Friday, July 18th, 2014 TCAPP kicked off it's first outreach event in Virginia. Families gathered at All Fired Up in Richmond, and showed off their creativity by painting beautiful pieces of pottery. It was a nice, relaxing activity, that allowed for great conversation, laughter and fun. A great time was had by all.
One mom commented, "I had one happy child tonight. She and I had a wonderful time and would love to see you all again soon!"
While another mom said " My girls had a fantastic time (as did I!)! I honestly don't recall the last time I heard them both repeat that they had such a good time so many times in a row in such a short period of time over anything."
It was so nice to see the kids enjoying themselves. Despite their daily medical challenges and chronic pain, they put on a smile, simply wanting to be kids and do kid things. An event like this gives them that sense of normalcy.
VA TCAPP Outreach is already planning their next get together! Check out some pictures here.
