Tyler and his classmates traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, during their spring break to build homes for families in need. With them, they brought their gold, foil ink t-shirts to wear while building. They had a few extras to spare, so they gave out shirts to some of the kids for whom they were building houses (look closely and you’ll see seven-year-old, Kevin, lounging among some of the teens).

Midway Middle School held their annual Special Olympics Spring Games this past month and the event was a hit! Not only are the students displaying their school banner here, but they are also showing off their brand new t-shirt design. Although you can’t see it in the picture, we love the quote decided on for the back of the shirts: “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

Denise was diagnosed with MS less than two years ago and since then, she has been surrounded by wonderful women who have given her more love and support than she could’ve ever hoped for. Just this past month, those women joined her for the MS Walk in Irvine, CA. The bright pink, custom shirts worn during the walk helped to earn these ladies the award for Most Inspirational team. Congrats, ladies!
