Thanks for everyone’s patience recently in terms of updates for the website. We have been focused on fundraising and, most recently, getting everything ready for Kevin’s transition to our dad’s house. It’s hard to believe that will be happening in less than a week!
We want to reiterate how deeply thankful we are for everyone’s support. It has been an incredible few months and it’s pretty clear how much love people have for Kevin. With the support of our communities, businesses, family, and dear friends, we have been able to raise over $80,000 so far for the Kevin Neary Trust. We are overwhelmed by the support. That funding is going to go a long way to help Kevin in both the near and long term. We can’t thank you enough.
We are also very appreciative of the local news media coverage of Kevin’s story and the continued support of the community for Kevin. We posted the links over at the Friend of Kevin Neary facebook page – check them out!
Kevin can’t wait to go home, and we can’t wait to get him there. There has been a lot of preparation going on, both at home and at Magee, for that to happen. We’ve been learning what we need to do to be prepared for Kevin’s transition. Kevin is slated to come home next Thursday, barring any unforeseen changes.
For the time being, we’ve set up a temporary space for Kevin, but we are getting the plans ready to put on the addition that will be Kevin’s space over the long term. We’ll be update you as that gets underway.
We will have more information on visiting Kevin at home once we get closer to the date and get him accommodated with his new space. And we know many of you will want to help, so we’re working on the best way to do that. Stay tuned.
Although we have been focused on getting Kevin home, there have been a lot of requests from folks who want to host additional events to raise money for the Kevin Neary Trust, which we really appreciate. Right now, however, we can’t go ahead with every event considering how much is going on.
Details for the events that have already been scheduled are available under the Events tab at the top of the site. Check there for any updates. If there are any major updates, we will put up another post.
That’s about it for now. We hope to have more updates as we get closer to Kevin’s transition home!
