John was among half-dozen kids and young adults from St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children who got out of their wheelchairs and defied gravity to fly at Virginia’s only indoor skydiving facility. The “Soar with St. Mary’s” event was a blast for kids, families, staff, and friends of the Home. “It’s one of the most rewarding and fun events our children have been involved with,” said CEO William C. Giermak.
The action in Virginia Beach was captured with a GoPro camera, which was donated to St. Mary’s by the father of one of the kids. He wanted to give parents who couldn’t attend a way to see the great things their kids are doing.
