La Verne Event to Benefit Be Perfect Foundation

La Verne Event to Benefit Be Perfect Foundation

Written BY: The Barefoot Realtor

Okay, so I have mentioned previously that I went to Western Christian High School.  Western was a small private school with maybe 200 students when I was there.  I knew everyone and I loved it because I was involved.  I sang in the choir, took stats for soccer, did year book one year and most and best fun was being a watergirl for the football team.  Great place to send your kids!

When I was there a football player named Hal Hargrave and a cheerleader named Lori Salce were dating.  They have since married and are still going strong despite the odds. (Ya, this is gonna be a long blog...)  hal hargrave

You see, Hal had a horrific accident.  You can read about Hal's Accident on the website for the charity Be Perfect - Helping Hal Help Others.  He broke his neck and had all kinds of damage to other parts of his body - but most especially, his spinal cord. And so now, Hal is in a wheelchair.  The stats and the doctors say that he will never walk again.  But does that keep Hal down - NO! hal hargrave 

And Hal wants to be perfect and help others. The idea for the Be Perfect Foundation came when he was at Casa Colina in a very long rehab and now at Project Walk and the Claremont Club/Casa Colina Club.  He saw many others with spinal cord injuries who simply could not afford the costs for a lifetime of recovery.  The cost for spinal cord injuries can be in excess of $2.5M for a lifetime.  And with approximately 13,000 new injuries each year, you can understand the needs.  

Fo Hal, his recovery programs are exercised based with Project Walk/The Claremont Club and are simply not covered by insurances.  This process costs between $25,000 and $45,000 per year.  Hal is lucky, he is funded. But many others are not.

So, there are events.  Be Perfect is having it's 5th Annual event - "These Boots Are Made For Walking".  It will be held this Saturday evening at 5PM and is held at the outdoor ampitheater at a sponsor's house in La Verne.  Ya, the sponsor is the dad of another Western Chirstian Graduate, Greg Hafif.  You can attend by clicking the Be Perfect website link and then clicking the Event Registration Link.  And if you want to follow Hal, here's the link to Hal's blog.

And here's a clip of Hal on ABC7.

Serving the 210 Corridor - the cities of Monrovia, Duarte, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont, Upland, Pomona, Chino, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga and Fontana - wherever the need arises.
