As Syracuse Crunch fans all know by now, Michaels & Smolak, P.C., your Central New York Injury Law Firm, is honoring “Everyday Heroes” at all Syracuse Crunch home hockey games this winter. “Everyday Heroes” are local community volunteers who have given their time and talents to a local charitable organization. In front of the whole Crunch crowd, we regal them, and their family and friends, with free game tickets, food, drink, etc.
Let me introduce you to Michaels & Smolak’s latest “Everyday Hero”, eleven year-old Christopher Rawlins. Chris was born with Cerebral Palsy. He attends Reynolds Elementary School where he is an excellent student, plays the tuba and soccer, and participates in school plays. Chris has also participated in the Special Olympics and is a Jr Elk at the American Legion in Baldwinsville.
Nothing holds this kid back! He has a fantastic attitude, an infectious smile, and likes to keep friends and family entertained with knock-knock jokes. He is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and can rattle off statistics on games and players.
As you can see, Chris has not let the hard knocks of life knock him down. But there’s more: He gives back! He regularly helps out at a local Music Fest to raise money for Cerebral Palsy and is an active member for other fund raisers as well. He approaches each new task with determination and pride in doing the best he can.
Congratulations to Chris for being an Everyday Hero, and to his family for helping him become the wonderful person he is. And thanks to Linda Wood for nominating him.
Come on, help us honor your Everyday Hero, right here, right now! It could be a friend, a relative, or just someone whose volunteer efforts you admire. Click here to nominate someone right now.
