Brayden's Buddies

Brayden McKim came into this world 18 years ago and continues to amaze us at the lives he touches. He loves to laugh, swimming, little kids, babies, Cheerios and cheeseburgers. His brother and sister are hisvbest friends and his biggest cheerleaders. He is a senior in high school this year and known by every student in that school. He participates in champions together with his cousin who helped develop the program at Kanakee Valley High School. Together they are changing attitudes about special needs individuals and pushing each other to be better. Brayden continues to succeed because of the love and support he gets from his family and friends. We are so proud of Brayden and look forward to the plans God has for him and his future.
