We are honored today to be part of HollyRod Foundation’s MyBrotherCharlie Goes to the Aquarium event in Long Beach, CA.
The HollyRod Foundation was formed in 1997 by actress, Holly Robinson Peete and her husband former NFL quarterback, Rodney Peete and is dedicated to providing help and hope to those living with autism and Parkinson’s disease.
Close to heart, Holly and Rodney’s eldest son, RJ, was diagnosed with autism. Autism can decimate families physically, emotionally and most of all financially. The foundation’s purpose is to provide support and resources to families affected.
Holly also collaborated with her daughter to write the Award Winning Book – My Brother Charlie based on RJ’s experience.
The book then evolved into an annual event…a day to celebrate families and children. For a child living with autism, an amusement park can be a frightening experience. The foundation therefore treats these children and their families to a day of fun and respite in an open, welcoming environment.
Activities are designed specifically for a child with autism and include multiple sensory experiences including a mobile aquarium display, animal petting exhibit, arcade games, amusement rides, live music and a quiet room. The event creates a network of families that stay connected long after the carnival ends and truly fosters an environment of inclusion and acceptance.
Our team created Special Sports Packs especially for MyBrotherCharlie that include our Topricin for Children samples. These packets will be given to all families attending the event. Topical BioMedics, Inc has heard from many parents on how we are of true benefit to their children suffering from Autism – providing much needed relief from repetitive motion injuries, bruises, growing pains, and more. It warms our hearts to serve this community.
We believe every man, woman, and child deserves to live a joyful and fulfilling life, doing the things they love with the people they love most. The HollyRod foundation also strives to help people live their best lives, today!
In celebration of our children with Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete! We look forward to continually contributing to the great efforts of The HollyRod foundation.
