Patrick is 41 years of age and is supported by St.Amant’s Community Residential Program. Patrick and his support team are always exploring new and exciting ways for him to explore his neighborhood and he loves outdoor activities. Biking, hiking, swinging on swings and jumping on trampolines are all regular choices for him. Your support recently funded a new trampoline for Patrick and he uses it often.
Patrick also recently received a tandem bicycle and he was so happy to ride it around his neighborhood for his MOVE challenge for the Free the Spirit Festival. This bike allows a support team member to ride with him rather than simply walking behind as was the case with his old one. This means Patrick can go further and faster! He is thrilled!
Patrick is a man of many interests, and another passion of his is music. Music means a lot to Patrick and your support, combined with his own funds, enabled him to purchase his own musical instruments. He loves his guitar and ukulele and he uses them virtually every day.
Patrick’s string instruments are tuned in a unique way for him so that he can make a chord independently. Once tuned, he does the rest. He regularly plays the instruments and places his ear to the core while he strums the strings. The sounds and vibration of the strings is very stimulating and calming. This is an activity he loves and the instruments are among his most used possessions.
Thank you for supporting Patrick and his many passions! He, and the more than 2,100 other people supported by St.Amant, are grateful.
