Special Feature on ABC “Above and Beyond: Inspiring Our Community”

Above and BeyondTune in for a special Feature on WABC-TV Channel 7 Eyewitness News program “Above and Beyond: Inspiring Our Community” featuring one of our phenomenal families and supporters! Watch on Saturday, June 28th at 7 p.m. (rebroadcast on Sunday, June 29th, 5:30 a.m.) for a half hour special of inspiring stories.

The segment will focus on Deer Park High School student and football player Isaiah Edwards, 16, who recently honored by the Deer Park School District for his exemplary volunteer work with special needs children in the district. In particular, Edwards was singled out for acting as a role model and mentor for Peter Gilbert, a 13 year-old student at Robert Frost Middle School who has autism and a rare genetic disease. An extraordinary set of boys who truly inspire and motivate us to do what we do- a special thank you to Veronica Gilbert, the mother of Isaiah for her support.

The “Above and Beyond: Inspiring Our Community” program honors those who help their neighbors, who bring awareness to causes big and small, who lift our spirits and make our communities better places. It is hosted by anchors Michelle Charlesworth and Rob Nelson.
