Rotary raises more than $145,000 for children with disabilities

Cincinnati Rotary’s recent Believe 2 Achieve attracted more than 400 guests and raised over $145,000 for children with disabilities.

The fifth annual event, presented by U.S. Bank, supports Stepping Stones/Camp Allyn, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati and the Autism Society of Greater Cincinnati.

Co-chairs were Mike LeVally and Don Keller. Emcees were former Bengal Dave Lapham and Brad Johansen of WKRC. A special guest was Ted Kremer, whose enthusiastic stint as a Cincinnati Reds batboy gained national attention. Kremer, who has Down syndrome, now works part time for the Reds and is an advocate for people with disabilities.

Believe 2 Achieve is staged by The Rotary Club of Cincinnati and The Rotary Foundation of Cincinnati. The club owns Camp Allyn in Batavia, where Stepping Stones provides programming for children, teens and adults with disabilities.
