Couple helps special needs kids



Hunt said the foundation stayed current with her son’s treatment and progress and “they were very, very gracious to help out with that second round of treatments. I have watched them create miracles in people’s lives through their tragedy. They’re wonderful, wonderful people.”

The foundation relies on grants and donations and fundraising events to do its work. Upcoming events include Popcornopolis, a popcorn sale. Popcorn can be purchased while quantities last by calling the office at 735-3220.

The Nathan Shinn Foundation Benefit for Children with Special Needs will be from 7 to 11 p.m. May 10 at Charlie’s Sports and Grill, 145360 NE 20th St. in Choctaw.

The event touts two bands, auction items and a raffle. Local celebrity Matt Grice, a UFC (mixed martial arts) fighter, will sign autographs.

A Hot Wheel Sensation Car and Bike Run is set for June 8 at the Hilltop Hideaway in Noble, 1105 N. Main St.

Fundraising is important to the foundation and Roberts said she’s passionate about what she does.

“I love special needs children,” Roberts said. “I’m thankful to be a part of this.”
