“Jacob's Chance believes that every person should have an opportunity to enjoy all the amazing things life has to offer.  For the families of children with disabilities, this is not easy. Jacob's Chance mission is to support families by removing boundaries, obstacles and stigmas that the families battle every day for their child to participate in athletics, social settings and outdoor adventures.  We began this mission knowing that we cannot do it alone. It takes a community standing strong together to make these opportunities happen. We are grateful for Thalhimer Gives for having the passion and compassion for those in the community that need a little extra support. My mom always said it takes a village to raise a child. How lucky Jacob's Chance is to have Thalhimer friends in our village. We are grateful for your monetary gifts that will offset our program costs. We are most grateful for the gift of your time and heart. Thank you for being on our team and helping to make great things happen!" Kate Mardigian, Executive Director, Jacob’s Chance. 

“Jacob’s Chance is such a unique and special organization. Their mission and passion for what they do is absolutely amazing. Through their efforts, children and young adults get to participate in sports and outdoor adventures and do many things that most of us take for granted.  For many of us that grew up with sports and athletics as part of our lives, we know how important it can be and how positive it is for your development and simple enjoyment of life. Our Thalhimer Gives team enjoyed helping Jacob’s Chance with several of their events and we were thrilled to help them financially. Our time with them and those in their program was truly inspiring,” Lee Warfield, President & CEO of Thalhimer.
