"I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me" Phil 4:13
The Ryan Shelor Fund was organized October 2, 2005 in honor of Ryan Shelor as a charitable organization through which funds are disbursed to need based children with special needs/disabilities. Ryan’s wish was that this organization be created as his legacy to help provide a means for children eighteen and younger to be provided with equipment, services, entertainment, social opportunities, providing accessibility, etc for which they may otherwise be unable to attain. Ryan passed on August 10, 2006, but lived long enough to present the Fund’s first award. Ryan lived a full life, participating in many events and experiencing many activities which other children in his condition have no means to accomplish. He met many friends with similar special needs throughout his short life that struggled with daily living needs and always wanted to help them out.
