GRAND HAVEN, Mich., (May 29, 2014) — Heading to Lake Michigan is a popular summer activity, and the non-profit “Lori’s Voice” wants to make sure everyone can get to the water and enjoy the beach. Thursday, the group donated a beach wheelchair to Grand Haven State Park.

“We at Lori’s Voice believe every child should be able to get their toes in the water,” said Dave Hastings, one of the non-profit’s founders.

Lori’s Voice, formed in November 2011, aims to help children 18 and with muscular, neurological, and other degenerative diseases afford medical equipment, special camps and services that may not be covered by insurance.

Its namesake, Lori Hastings,  was diagnosed herself with muscular dystrophy as a 12-year-old girl. Over the years, the Coopersville woman has lost the use of her hands and legs, but she hasn’t lost the ability to help others.

Lori’s Voice Walkathon, the group’s largest fundraiser, is scheduled for Saturday June 14th at the Berlin Raceway in Marne. Registration begins at 8:30 am with the walk scheduled from 9-11am.
