First Assembly NLR, Wild River Country sponsor Will Saunders Day May 25

First Assembly NLR, Wild River Country sponsor Will Saunders Day May 25

First Assembly of God, North Little Rock, Arkansas, pastored by Reverend Rod Loy, in cooperation with Wild River Country, North Little Rock, Arkansas is sponsoring the second Will Saunders Day for Children with Special Needs. 

Will Saunders is a Central Arkansas child with Angelman’s Syndrome.  This neuro-genetic disorder prevents him from enjoying summer activities like swimming.  Will loves water, and his family’s dream was for him to spend a day at Wild River Country.  This was an impossible dream for a child with Angelman’s Syndrome.

“Will is a great kid with so much love and energy.  When we heard about his family’s dream, we had to make it a reality,” says Loy.

RUFL Football

The Rivals United Flag Football League was started by a group of committed football fans who wanted to ensure all children, including kids with disabilities, would have the opportunity to play the game. Each child playing RUFL gets a chance to play quarterback, kicker, offense and defense. The program is designed to ensure each child experiences success and being part of a team. The RUFL Football Summer Camp is an opportunity for your child, ages 7-17, learn more detailed fundamentals of football, interact and work within a team and have fun. The dates for this year’s camp will be July 10-12 from 9 a.m. to 12. The camp will be held at the UCA Pepsi Center in Conway.  Community Connections does charge a $40.00 camp fee but assistance is available if needed. Any questions please contact Derek Moser at Derek_moser@pedsplustherapy.com
