Misericordia

Misericordia offers a community of care that maximizes potential for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged. By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home. Misericordia residents are important citizens of the greater Chicago community. Some residents work regularly at Chicago businesses. Other businesses outsource projects to be performed on-campus by Misericordia residents. Community volunteers bring their expertise to Misericordia. Residents regularly go on community excursions for social and recreational events. Misericordia strives to involve its residents in all feasible aspects of community living. Misericordia will continue to work toward a bright future where persons with disabilities achieve maximum independence and realize their greatest potential - in an environment of dignity, challenge, respect and spirituality.

My first (102) Hole Hike is in the books

As you may have heard by now, I successfully completed my first Hundred Hole Hike at Flossmoor Country Club on June 17th.

Success is my only mother-loving option. Failure’s not.

I’m not sure how much in common my hike has with the themes of 8 Mile and its Oscar-winning song “Lose Yourself”, but part of that fantastic song (The G-rated version, of course) resonated with me

It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood

100 holes. 1 day. No mulligans.

Among those who have seen me play golf, the feedback is unanimous: Optimistic. Ridiculous. Impossible. Dude, lose some weight.
