Max: The Amazing Race

(Max wanted to write our story this year.)

Team Max: The Amazing Race is ready to walk! Hi! I'm Max Race. I am in 4th grade (in Mrs. Wolf's class) and am 9 years old. In school I like to do math, especially decimals. I like Mrs. Wolf a lot because she is a great teacher. School is easy for me because I have Mrs. Hogan. She is my paraprofessional and she helps me have good behavior and finish my work. I take breaks with her during the day because I get tired and need to go to a quieter place. Sometimes places like the cafeteria or my classroom are too loud. When I'm at school I also see other people who help me like Miss Cyr in Resource Room 8, Mrs. Condon who helps me with physical therapy and Mrs. Cotter who helps me with hand exercises. Mrs. Dowling helps me with speech. My favorite part of speech is on Thursdays when I get to invite a friend to Lunch Bunch. On Fridays, Mr. Lemay helps me with an extra gym class so I can learn the skills. I also go to Hospital for Special Care for swimming lessons, more OT and speech.

When I'm not in school I love to listen to Lite 100.5, check sports scores and watch Special Agent Oso and Chuggington.

Please donate money to my walk team because the Epilepsy Foundation is helpful.

(Now this is Mom writing.) Don't let Max fool you, school is not always easy. This school year has been “easy" because of his AMAZING team, but it still has its fair share of tears, negotiations and gentle reminders about making good choices.

This year, your donation is more important than ever. We fear what changing budgets and priorities mean for families like ours. Your dollars will help the Foundation fight for kids like Max to attend school field trips, which they may not have otherwise done because of the need to have, and potentially use, emergency seizure medications. Your dollars will help the Foundation work with parents whose kids have been told they can’t attend after-school enrichments because of their epilepsy. Your dollars will help the foundation connect newly diagnosed people with the doctors, medications and community resources they need to survive. Your dollars will help send kids to camp and provide their parents with respite. Your dollars will help.

Thank you for supporting The Epilepsy Foundation of CT and for being part of our team.

Watch this short video ( to see how the Foundation helps Max and our family, as well as the 60,000 other people across the state who are affected by epilepsy.
